gosh, no one can quite prepare you for letting someone go for 2 years. especially someone that you love so much. I waned to bawl my eyes out and convince him to stay, but I know he’s doing exactly what the Lord wants, and what he needs. I couldn’t let him go. I still can’t let him go. there is going to be a huge, missing gap at our family dinners, our nights out, and just getting random texts from him throughout the week.
I’m going to miss his hugs. he might be the only sibling that hugs the other siblings when they walk through the door. it comes to natural to him. he has so much love. I’m going to miss his music. he always had the best music. I’m going to miss him laughing. he was always laughing at everyone’s jokes. I’m going to miss his humor. after we dropped him off, all we could do was think of all his funny jokes and sayings. even after he’s gone he will keep us laughing just thinking about him. I’m going to miss him. everything about him. I hope he knows how much our family loves him, and how long we sat there crying after he walked away for 2 years.
