My great grandfather, CP, trademarked this saying for me. Before he got off the phone with anyone, he would always say vaya con dios ~ Go with God. Take it how you like. It means different things to different people I think. For me, it's a way of saying farewell. Take care of yourself. Be a good soul. Pay it forward. Take the the high road.
I cannot put into words how much I love these people. Even though I only spent a few moments with each of them, some not even that, having all of them there together, with me, was the BEST GIFT I could ever receive. The people that I share my life with are such a beautiful, kind, thoughtful, loyal, creative, entertaining bunch. All of these people together are the sole reason I have such a rich and blessed life.
It was fun to look around and see all of the different phases of my life I have shared with the guests spread across the lawn. Aunts and Uncles, Moms, Dads, Childhood friends, Rodeo family, Co workers, Jr High friends, Neighbors and a few from somewhere along the way.
So, to all of you, who are a part of me, no matter how you interpret it, or what it means to you, just remember one thing ~ Vaya con Dios.
