Different languages… same word: goodbye. A word Brian and I have become very familiar with over the past few days.
Brandon and Megan moved to their new home in OH on Thursday and this afternoon we told Zach goodbye as he headed to North Greenville University for his senior year. Granted, he’s much closer than Brandon, but because he’s an RA this year he won’t be able to leave the campus except for one weekend a month. I’ll miss Zach being here for more reasons than I can count. He’s pure joy. Plus, when he’s here, she’s here too — and that’s always a pleasure!
I’m learning that while it’s never easy to say “goodbye” to your kids — whether they are 5 or 25 — it is necessary in order for them to become everything God has created them to be. What more could a mom ask for?
