When Some of Your Closest Friends Leave...

...you wanna cry. I didn't cry at the airport when my sister (and best friend), Haley, and my close friends Claudia, Araya, and Aubrey left on their trip to Africa (although they have training camp in IL this week, and they head off to Africa next week). Seeing my mom, sister, and friends cry & having Araya say to me, "Videotape Mulan (the play we're in) for me, OK? And I wanna see when you sing and then zoom up on your face." That nearly did it :-). I love those girls and am so proud of them.

Here's a question for you:
When you have to say goodbye, how do you handle it? Have you had to say goodbye before?

I usually try to stay super busy -- to keep my mind off it and so the time'll pass more quickly.

I know how you feel I went to Africa on a missions trip with my fam. and then a few years later I had to say goodbye to my parents who were going back to africa to pick up my sister we were adopting.

I cried with my dad at the airport when he first started going to Africa on mission trips. But later it wasn't so bad. (Even I still missed him just as much!!!)
