(quote from Chuckie Sullivan, Good Will Hunting.) Does anybody know the next lines? Here's my fill in the blank:
“Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out. We have a few drinks, and a few laughs, and it's great. But you know what the best part of my day is? For about ten seconds, from when I pull up to the curb and when I get to your door, 'cause I think, maybe I'll get up there and I'll knock on the door and you won't be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. You just left. I don't know much, but I know that….:?” I know that the quality of time we spend together is important. I know that knowing we will not be together forever should not push me away from our friendship today. We will get together again soon. I am happy for your new life.
I have several friends to whom new life arrives…a new parish, new apartments to construct, a Costa Rican home to return, a new teaching position,, . Recently, work has taken my husband away from home. As hard as it is to let go something bigger awaits. My sadness is mixed with joy. Chuckie Sullivan the character from Good Will Hunting speaks what I cannot say. It’s difficult to let go; possessive to hold on... though short, I am thankful for time together. We will get together soon.
