Missing You

Today I had to say goodbye to my younger daughter as she left to go back to college.  I haven't had to do the goodbye after Christmas departure with her before.  I can't say I enjoyed it.  Either did she.  We are both super sad and it seemed harder than usual to say our goodbyes.  Christmas break was wonderful.  All 3 kids home, laughing, having fun, spending all our time together - it was perfect.  I hate it that reality has to be so harsh. My older daughter departs on Friday and with that - our time together is over.  I know these moments together will become more and more rare as they get older. The other day my mother-in-law and I were looking at old photographs and she said - wouldn't it be nice if we could just keep them like that.  I have to say - I wish I could keep them here forever. *Sniff Sniff*  All I can do is try to remember one of my favorite quotes,
"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."  ~Kahlil Gibran

I know I am blessed to feel so much sadness....  I have a family that fills me with that much love.
