My Brother O loves me and I am sad to be leaving him. What will he do for a TA without me? Well, presumably he will find a new one, but I am still sad to be leaving that job.
About a year ago, actually, Brother O left the states to go teach in Jerusalem. We kept in touch while he was there and at one point he asked me if there was anything I wanted him to get me. I mentioned that I might like to have an olive wood nativity set, but I knew they were expensive so I told him not to bother if that was the case.
Well, yesterday I got back to the office to ask him if there was anything else he wanted me to take care of before I left for the day. He wasn't there (filming is occurring), but had left me a card and this (see image below) on my coat.
I tell you what, goodbyes are hard and I seriously hope I will be able to see him at least once more before I leave.
