Goodbye, Dear Friend

You have been my constant companion for six years. You helped me when my children were sick, you held me when I couldn’t sleep, you entertained the kids for hours at a time, you kept my feet and ankles slightly less swollen than they might have been otherwise during T’s pregnancy,  and so much more. And pretty, you were (still are) so pretty.  I can’t believe we have to say goodbye; but, the hours of hard work and love you put in will never be forgotten. Never.

You will be missed, dear friend, you will be missed.

Old Faithful
