See you later...

I've never been great at good-byes. Honestly, I have been dreading yesterday for at least a week now. Last night was the last night our friend Cam would be staying with us. It's been nearly 6 months since he moved into our den in the basement. I just can't believe the time has gone so quickly.
When Brian and I first told him he could stay with us for a while...we really knew very little about him. We just knew that he was going through a rough patch and needed a bed, we could help with that! What we didn't have any idea how blessed we would be!
You know how sometimes you come home, look around and wonder, "How in the world did this house get so messy?" Having Cam around was the exact opposite. The dishwasher would always be unloaded, things would magically get organized, plus groceries would appear in the fridge! It never failed that when B and I had not clue what was for dinner, Cam would text us saying he had dinner under control.
Last night Cam brought home some great gifts for us as well...the best best thing he gave us was the gift card to eat out! There he goes again taking care of dinner for us. Hahaha
When it was time to say goodbye, we all hugged and shared some of the great things we all experienced through the last 6 months. There were awkward silences here and there, but overall it was more a feeling of "see you later" than of goodbye. It's really weird to think that he's not going to be there when I get home tonight. Bittersweet. We are so happy for him, yet will miss him at the same time.

We definitely wish him the best on his adventure in Spain. And can't wait to throw a Welcome Home party!
