I Don’t Know If I Can Bear Tomorrow

My parents’ visit ends tomorrow. They leave on the 10:30 p.m. red-eye. Yesterday and today I found myself verging on tears. It has been an intense and happy visit. There have been many “firsts” in the past week that I’m thrilled my parents were part of experiencing.

I need to keep myself together, to focus on the moment, so I can enjoy them. There will be time for tears later.

    I’m afraid it doesn’t get easier. Every year my mom comes out for dd’s birthday and every year I cry after I drop her off at the airport. Enjoy the time you have – cry later.

    Dear Sis – Parting is such sweet sorrow, in this case. Remember earlier this year when you thought they would never come to see Claire? Well! Never say never! This visit will reap many rewards for all in the near and far future, for that I am sure!
