I've been thinking this morning about the Goodbyes. I've been saying more of them in my life lately and I think the older you get, the more of them you have to say.
Goodbyes make you think. They make you remember what's important in life. They can bring you to your knees, which isn't a bad thing.
The funny thing is, while I was typing this, Ethan called. "Hi Mom". Yep, life is full of Goodbyes and Hellos and moments like that. One moment you're saying Hello to a new little life, and the next you're watching them walk into their own.
Sometimes, Hello seems like it might never come. But when it does, I realize that God's plans are always better than mine.
The Goodbyes make me treasure the Hellos.
