Today was Sarah's last day in the office at Crossroads. It was a very emotional day for her. She even posted a picture of her empty office chair on her blog.
She has officially closed this chapter of our lives at Crossroads. My chapter here still has a few more pages, since I won't be able to head to Myrtle Beach until early August. As these pages begin to turn, I'm reminded of a ling from Semisonic's Closing Time:
"Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
This is the end of the beginning of this part of our lives. But there's a new beginning on the horizon. It includes both of us working new jobs in new areas, contributing to our world in new and exciting ways.
Just like most things in life, this end of a beginning is filled with joy and sorrow.
