Leaving...

My mom is leaving in the morning.

My dad has called for her to GET BACK HOME and sadly- he always wins!

We haven't done much this week but it's been great to have her here and she has been excellent back-up during some rough days that everyone needed support. Moms are good for that, right?

So, I'm already seeing signs of sadness in her face and she's dropped "You could just come home with me" hints but I'm reassuring her that it won't be long and that my annual October Fest trip is just around the corner.

Except, no one is feeling festive and October seems a LONG WAY AWAY...

Oh well. I'm not crying because it's over...I'm smiling because it happened.

Right?

(I know you may read this tonight...and-I love you, San. I have thought of no one else today but you. Just thought you'd like to know.)

Thanks Charity, I am checking in today on you. I am sorry that your mom has to come back home. I know that visits seem so short. I am greatly looking forward to your trip home and I need to know exactly when that is going to be! By the way, did Sam ever get his mail??

hi Charity! You look great - I read your posts and sometimes I felt like I was reading my thoughts...childhood home, mom blues (missing mom), etc. have a great week!
