Goodbye sweet boy!
Saying goodbye to Chad was so hard to do yesterday. Mark, Sandy and I met his group at the airport. As we walked through the airport my heart swelled up as we were getting his boarding pass, checking his bag, then walking to the security check point. When we arrived there we each gave him a hug. I held him so tight as I cried and told him I loved him. Then as he walked out of site Sandy and I were both sobbing messes. Mark, of course being the man, held it together. I've spent this whole day in emotional sadness curled up in my chair wallowing in self pity. I promise tomorrow will be better. It's just so hard for a mom to let go of her babies...no matter how old they are.
