Saturday's the day

Thank you to everyone for your fascinating contributions and comments on my previous post "Baptism at Easter". I'm afraid I am too distracted to respond with any depth or intelligence as I am thinking about tomorrow and preparing all sorts of family history documents to take with me to give to my cousin. She leaves the country on Sunday and I shan't see her until either she comes again in a matter of years or I have saved the dosh to get us all to Australia.

It will be emotional saying goodbye so it will have to be an Au revoir.

Good luck tomorrow hon.

I'm sure you'll see her again Doris. (I know it doesn't make it less tearful etc but I have found that the net has made an immense difference in keeping up with friends/relatives etc who live in Aus/NZ, so I hope you can)

Enormous hugs x

I hate saying goodbye, too. Unfortunately it happens a lot here. People don't stay forever.

Like Joe says, though, email has made things quite a bit easier. It doesn't replace the real thing, but still, you're in touch in a way that didn't used to be possible.

Just read your post regarding the baptism and it really made me stop and think about the significance of it. Once again you offered up something to stimulate my worn out brain :-)

Enjoy the time with your friend, sweetie.
