Goodbye to the old hello to the new!

Yesterday I had to say goodbye to an old friend. Yes there were a few tears. We've been friends for a long time but yesterday I decided to let her go. I actually buried her. Our friendship just wasn't the best the for me. She caused me pain and heartache. She made me cry often.

Goodbye old friend.....Now I'm moving on. THe new girl is happier, more upbeat, and confident. I'm never going back to the old!

Sounds like she was a troubled girl, perhaps. There's a look of sadness in her eyes - even pain!
No doubt, a "call for help!" She can't tell what's what in a world of smoke and mirrors. And who hasn't fallen for that?
Perhaps now she can find her peace! Lovely creature - we barely knew ye!
*great post - thanks for sharing*

Girl, you look like your Aunt Joy in that last picture! (Definitely not a bad thing, because I think she's beautiful!) You look amazing!

Laura Lea - you are looking marvelous dear and not sure if you remember visiting a WW meeting in Waldorf Marylad last year. If you did, we remember you and think of you often. So glad to see that you are keeping your blog up as I find it to be very inspiring as I recover from an injury. Wishing you all the best and keep up the good work....can't wait to see the changes you make in the coming months. 2010 is going to be your best year ever. :)

I'm looking at those pictures and suddenly that song pops in my head. I don't remember who sings it, but it's something about "never going back to ok". I think it's a Christian song. But you may have said goodbye to an old friend, but sister, you look great and it looks like you are feeling great! Words cannot describe how happy I am for you!
