Twenty years ago, I participated in a two year, cohort, graduate school program and developed a strong friendship with another member of the group. Jodi was a young teacher in the process of finishing graduate school, planning a wedding and preparing to move to Cyprus with her new husband. After nineteen years of living and working abroad, they are returning to the USA with their three teenagers and a dog.
I made an eclectic collection of cookies as a welcome gift, took pictures of them and created a card that said:
As you leave the beautiful
beaches of island life behind,
as you embrace the journey
of your new life in the
Welcome to your new home,
and GO GRENS!
