[my life, my blessings, my journey]

see you soon

I don't have many words for the "see you soon" we had to say last weekend. It was so hard. But it was also good. Necessary. Life-giving.

We adore you. The way they look at you and laugh, the smiles reserved especially for you, the hugs that last for minutes. These are the things we'll hold onto during the months ahead.
