It was a hard day yesterday. Evangelina, Miles and I decided to shut down the shop one day early. We just couldn’t hang on any longer. Too painful to try to answer all the questions over and over again of why we are leaving. The papers are up on the windows and door and boxes are being packed. All we have now is each other. Trying to be brave together. I’m so grateful for my community of friends. Katie and Brad are coming over tonight after work to help us with more packing. I’m switching my car with Lance this morning so we could start moving. As Nietzsche said, “that which does not kill us makes us stronger.” And thank goodness for the friends that I love! Okay off to being brave.
