gone for good or good and gone?
Last night, I had to say one of the hardest goodbyes I’ve ever had to say. A man by the name of Kerry Klecic walked into my life last october and has made and imprint on my heart. His dad was suffering from terminal cancer at the same time my mom was rediagnosed in december so he’s been my rock for the past 5 months. Last night, he announced that his dad is cancer free and I couldn’t contain my joy for him and his dad and his family. That news was the best news i’ve heard in about a year. It was a sign of hope for me; like God telling me not to give up on the plan He has for my mom. Kerry wrapped his arms around me and let me cry all over his white shirt. I’m so blessed to have him as a best friend and I couldnt have hand picked a better person to walk me through this past semester. I love the boy to death and every other person at Crosswinds that was there for me when i needed a shoulder these past 5 months. Saying goodbye to Kerry was by far the hardest, but walking out of Crosswinds last night for the last time as a USF student was more bitter than sweet. They are my family.
Today I packed up my room, by myself, in the rain, filled up my tank and headed home. i didnt cry; though i almost did. But the moment i got in my car and drove away the song A Little Bit Stronger came on. The words “even on my weakest days, i get a little bit stronger” have been the words running through my mind for the past 5 months. They are so true. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without all the trials God has put me through to make me stronger. Knowing that, I drove as fast as I could to get home to my family.
I truly am blessed, yes.
