One Week and Counting

In a week from today, I will be at the airport seeing Michael Rudd off.
I think that will be a sad day. But a happy one as well.
I am so grateful for him and the example he is to me.
He is seriously the greatest guy ever...Everyone thinks so.
I am one lucky girl.
And the people in the South Dakota Rapid City are some lucky folk.
And now I'm going to stop before the tears start.
The end.
P.S. Michael Rudd's farewell is this Sunday at 8:30am at the building on Harris north of Brown. Yeah, I know it's way too early to be at church, but he's worth it :)
P.S.S. I have gotten comments, texts, and VOICEMAILS about how I could only think of 19 reasons why I love Michael Rudd. FYI I stopped at 19 was because it was his 19th birthday. As Spencer would say, that's uh-lair-ee-us.
