I received the October 2008 issue of H&H today. It had good weight to it and a beautiful cover. With DH at work and the kids at school, I was able to set myself up with a coffee and enjoy a cover to cover peek. I don't read too much the first time I 'walk through' my issues, but the Editor's Page is an exception. I ALWAYS read Cobi's page. I don't do that with any other magazine.
And so there it was, "Leaving Home" printed up top in big letters. I wondered what that meant. Surely not her 'new' home with the great kitchen I still think about. Maybe the cottage? Something to do with her new cottage? Leaving home for the cottage? I dropped my eyes to the print and read the first words:
"This is not an easy letter to write as it will be my last."
Wow, that hit hard. I continued to read the full letter with the words "OH MY GOD" repeating in my head (or was that out loud?) the whole way through it. I'm really going to miss her.
