I just said good-bye this morning to my mom and dad after a wonderful 2 week visit. We have been anticipating this two-week time for months with a laundry list of things to see and do and more importantly the opportunity to soak each other up after such a long time apart.
It’s hard to say good-bye. I have gotten really good at it over the years as I live so far away now and with every visit there is an ultimate good-bye. But today hurts. I can’t tell you why exactly. I just feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest. Family is my life blood. God made me that way and that is why I am so committed to my children and husband. But it all started with my mom and my daddy. Having them here gave me the best of both and it is hard to let that go.
If you are blessed to have a family of any kind, do me a favor today and be intentional. Tell them how much they mean to you. Hug them and give them your best. They should be the most important people in your life. And they need to know that. I love you mom and dad. Come back soon…….
