Hardest goodbye of my life

Last week the awesome women I teach English on Wednesdays took me out for a wonderful meal.

This week I taught them my final lesson
Class A

Class B

As a military spouse, I've said hundreds of goodbyes but none have been as difficult as this one.  I managed to keep myself composed through both classes, then at the end of the second class, the ladies sang to me and I lost it!  I will never be able to hear "You Are My Sunshine" again without thinking of these beautiful women.  I cannot even begin to put into words how much I'm going to miss them.  They came into my life with such love and enthusiasm and have brought so much joy to my time here in Japan.

I know some of you read this so I want to say thank you.  Thank you for allowing me into your hearts and sharing your lives with me.  Please come see me in California!  I miss all of you already.
