It was harder than I thought it would be – to say goodbye. But I told myself, it wasn’t goodbye, but until I see you again. I won’t be that far away. I know the reality of life and how distance can grow between people when it isn’t convenient. Moving away from MS has taught me that life lesson. But I also know that friendships can reach across distances no matter if the distance is great or small, a river or a state.

I found a network of friends there. They have shared many moments with me over the last ten months - moments that I will cherish and moments for which I am thankful. We’ve laughed. We’ve cursed. We’ve cried. We’ve found new slogans “Mother of god” and “bloody hell”. We helped. We encouraged, but most of all we became friends.

I am thankful for my new job and my new direction in life. But I can’t help but cry as I am sad that I am leaving the comfort and familiarity of my friends that I have made there. I can only hope that in this instance, these friendships will reach across distance and overcome the inconvenience of not seeing each other on a weekday basis.
