See you....

See you...., originally uploaded by lille-ursus.

In my family we never say "goodbye" when we part.

Ever since my mother had a very serious stroke 9 years ago, we began to skip "goodbye", and started to say "see you"...

I really like the thought of "see you". It's such a positive statement, which sends the message that we will meet again very soon.

And there was a great deal of hope in those 2 words 9 years back.

So, I leave you with a very happy "see you" and the wish of a loving, beautiful, exciting 2010. I would be so thrilled to "see" you again...

  5. Thinking of it, in Germany we say "Auf Wiedersehen" when we say Bye, which means lierally translated "Until we see us again". Or "Bis bald" which means "until very soon", so we actually do use this phrase you like so much anyway...

  10. I like "see you." When I was a little girl, an elderly woman named Eunice lived next door to my family. I would visit her and play cards or board games, and whenever I would leave, she'd always say a quick and cheery "Bye now." The last time that I saw her was when she was moving to Montana to be near her son, and she looked at me and said "Good bye." I've never forgotten how different that felt: sad and final.

  11. Thanks a lot, Christy - see you too. That's for sure. :))

    What a fine story, Sayschnicklefritz - I can easily imagine that the "goodbye" must have felt so very different.
    So you and I agree on "see you". :))

  12. That's so funny - I have that too. I always say 'see you later' as if by saying the words it will ensure that it happens.

    I love the happy new year applique - beautiful colours.

  13. That's exactly how I fell, Florence!! Goodbye somehow seems a bit more final.

    I love that appliqué too - it's from a firm called Pip Studio. :))
