I ended up being able to say goodbye to Eric one more time last night before he flies out to Missouri this morning. I went back to the hotel he was staying at after he got done with the medical checks and etc. yesterday. We went to dinner at Chipotle, enjoyed some good food and then said our last goodbyes. It really is such a weird feeling to hug someone, or just physically be in their presence for the last time in 5 months. I’m kind of at loss for words…but I know it’ is not forever, it just seems like it right now.
Have you had to be away from a loved one for a long time? How did you keep your mind off of it?
