Well then, I just received word that I should be gone by this time tomrrow. After speaking the heavily French-accented voice of my trucker, I discovered that I’ll be loading a truck between 3 and 4 pm tomorrow and on the road directly after that.

So, does it feel real yet? Nope, not really.

So, as I’ve had the stray thought leaking into my grey matter regarding this leavetaking, I offer them to you here in approximately the same semi-coherent fashion that they came to me in.

Leaving is making me realize that I don’t value the people around me enough. To everyone that I know I say that I’m sorry for taking you for granted.

Leaving is making me realize that I have way too much stuff. I’m not a rich person by any stretch, but most people on this planet would disagree with me. I don’t want to spend my life accumulating more and more stuff; I want to spend it experiencing life to the full.

Leaving is making me realize that where I live makes all the difference in the world.

Leaving is making me realize what a great group of people I’ve had the privilege of knowing over the past year and more. I’ll miss you all.

  1. Many blessings Matt. Grab up all the experience and wisdom you can and help us all grow.

    Love you, miss you, etc.

  2. Yeah, I’m really going to miss you guys. I already do, even though I don’t know you too well, my heart feels it and I can’t help it.


    Actually my eyes and brain are going to miss you as well. I like seeing the two of you all the time because I think you’re a smashing couple. Just lovely really, and my brain likes reading your posts and listening to what you have to say. I like you a lot.

    I’m glad you’re bringing us along through blogging but I just hope it doesn’t distract from all the fun you could have while posting.

    Try to balance it all out and have a good time while you’re there. I think it’s awesome you’re going. God bless you many times over.
