Goodbye. Seven letters, two syllables, and often a few tears. However, most people miss the fact that the first half of the word says ‘good’…as in good friends, good memories, and good experiences. If you have had all those then your goodbye should really be a good bye.
Tomorrow it will be my time to say goodbye and I know that as I watch the mountain disappear in my rearview mirror my feelings will be mixed. I’ll definitely feel an ache in my heart at having to leave my family for the last few months, but at the same time I know there will be a smile on my face as I recall the memories.
Like playing in 75 mph wind gusts with Scott, the look on Steve’s face when he has a plate full of food in front of him, listening to Mike meow at Marty and have heart palpitations over all the clouds, watching Stacey laugh until she can hardly breathe, and chatting with Deb while we lay on the bunks in our room.
It has been an amazing experience for me and I am honored that I got to be a part of such an awesome crew. There wasn’t one moment that I didn’t feel like part of the family. Words don’t describe my gratitude.
And now a very good, goodbye,
Amy Terborg, Summit Intern
