This morning, bright and early we left dd in her new apartment ready to start her new adventure. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Leaving my son 6 years ago is another one…
We spent a wonderful 5 days with her, moving her in, unpacking, setting everything up and doing a little exploring.
It wasn’t nearly enough time and may have possibly been a little long for her all at once.
We laughed, we cried, we talked and hugged every day.
Yesterday, she and I went to see ‘Christopher Robin’ and bawled. We loved it but that beginning just about killed us! We realized that I am her Pooh. In fact there was a part in the middle that I felt was a metaphor for my son and me. Another time I just wanted to turn off my brain and just enjoy the movie.
Now, DH and I are on our way home. There is so much to do when we get back. Thank goodness! I’ve discovered that I have to keep busy or I cry, so today, I have written 6 devotions, planned the service for Sunday and started planning the next 3 sermon series to get me through Christmas and now I’m writing this.
So, a new chapter is beginning for us and I know it is going to be great!
