Wednesday Ethan’s class sent home an envelope filled with good bye cards. As we read them aloud together the reality hit that it was beginning again – the season of goodbyes. The season that always rips at our hearts, because it is filled with so many hard moments. Those moments when Ethan reads the card from his 2nd grade best friend that says, “Without you here I will not have a best friend in Mr. Rood’s second grade class”. Those moments when he tears up on the car ride home from his last day of school. Those moments when he wonders how many of his friends will remember him in three years. Those moments when Ethan and I cry together because “it’s just too hard”. Those moments when there are too many lasts to even take note of them. Our life is full of these moments and we never get immune to them. We tear up, we grieve and then we press on. Pressing on with the hope that the day will come when there will be no more of these moments. Oh Glorious day!
