1392. The ship sets sail!

The ship sets sail! Of course, it didn’t have sails; it was a modern ship, but the expression from sailing days remained.

Curtis and Connie waved farewell to their daughter, Isabella. She had a terrible fear of flying and had won a huge scholarship to study overseas at a prestigious university. You’ve no idea how difficult it is these days to book a cabin on a ship that’s not simply a cruise liner.

And so they hugged and Isabella walked up the gangway, waving goodbye and blowing kisses. It was sad, but so exciting! The start of a profoundly wonderful adventure!

She would write, but she never came back. They never saw her again.

908. Felicity’s farewell

908felicity

Felicity had cancer and was in hospital. Dying. She was in America. Her daughter was with her. Her son, who lived in Australia, was coming over.

For two weeks her son stayed and visited every day. Then he had to go back to Australia because of family and work commitments. He came to say goodbye. He left for Australia.

O the grief… Felicity… how she wished she was dead. How she wished she was dead.
