reunited in johannesburg!!!!!

reunited in johannesburg!!!!!

“if it’s true, as shakespeare wrote, 
that “parting is such sweet sorrow,” 
then perhaps we could say that reuniting 
is the sweetest joy. while saying goodbye 
can be heart-wrenching at times, 
reconnecting with loved ones we haven’t 
seen in a while can be among life’s 
greatest moments.

for this reason, airports can be the 
happiest and the saddest of places – full of 
goodbyes and hellos that bring a tear to the 
eye and a lump to the throat. soldiers 
returning from active service are joyously
 embraced. loved ones away for a season are
 welcomed into open arms. and weary 
travelers are almost instantly rejuvenated 
by the sight of their family or friends. 
it matters not if they’ve been away for a 
few days or a few years… welcome-homes 
are moments to cherish.
in reality, we are continually saying goodbye
 and hello. and because life is short, we must
 make the most of each homecoming.” 
…couldn’t say anything better myself. i am one happy girl right now.
