Samuel left to go back to college this morning. I got up with him and Wes and fixed them a breakfast sandwich and so I could hug my boy and tell him goodbye. We enjoyed so much his five weeks at home! I think he was beginning to go a little crazy with nothing to do, though! ;)
Last night, when I was tired and it was late, I was near to tears. In fact, a few squeaked out when nobody was around. But when it came time to say goodbye this morning, I was able to send Sam off with a smile and an "I love you." I'm actually learning to do that! I thought I would always be a basket case when one of my children leaves after a visit.
Now I feel that Christmas break is really over. Everyone is back to doing their everyday stuff, and life picks up the normal pace again. Praise the Lord for "normal" however that might look in your life!
We have a busy weekend ahead. Beth and I are crafting (Beth) and speaking (me) at a ladies' tea in Blaine, WA tomorrow. On Sunday we're having missionaries in the morning service, then feeding them after church. And our church anniversary is just two weeks away! Have a great day, and enjoy your busy days!
