Going to Say Goodbye

I just got home from Malabon where our car has been for the past four weeks. We had it undergo a major body repair, the first since we got it more than five years ago. It's a pre-owned Nissan California. I visited it and picked up some of its accessories which I need to get replaced so they would match the new body and paint.

Anyway, in a while, me and my whole family will be going out to visit a close friend. He is scheduled to leave for Dubai this Friday and tonight may be the last time we would be able to spend time with him and his family.

I am gonna miss him and I'm sure his family will, too - more than we will. But his wife has plans to follow him, together with their children. She had an interview last Sunday and will be expecting a call by mid-September. We hope they can be together soon.

I am happy that my friend will be able to go. They have been praying for that for a long time and I hope everything works out well. I am glad that they are both at peace with the decision to work at Dubai. I know they said they're not planning on staying there for a long time, but who knows? Dubai is a much better place than the Philippines. But I know this is where his heart is.
I'm off to see him now.

must be difficult to have a close friend leave especially with the possibility of not seeing him and his family for a long time.
