- Taylor Dayne said it’s never an easy thing. (Love Will Lead You Back)
- Boyz II Men told us it’s hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
- The Beatles tell us that when you say goodbye, I say hello – actually a good reminder that with so many goodbyes, there will also come many new hellos.
- And the Sound of Music reminds us that there are many ways to say it. (So Long, Farewell)
We are in the heart of a season of goodbyes. The songs are right. It’s not easy. In some most cases, it’s just plain hard. There have been tears already. And with just two weeks until we leave the states, there will surely be more.
It has been interesting to see how each of us handles the sadness of goodbyes. It has been a good lesson in facing and dealing honestly with our emotions. It has been an important lesson in leaving well.
But as we get towards the end of of our goodbyes, we remember that it’s not really goodbye, it’s only see you later… and until we meet again! Happy Trails to You
