Today I am excited to be guest posting at Cara Meredith’s lovely blog! We have become blogging buddies, and I am so honored that she is allowing me to take part in her awesome series – “Nothing is small, in fact…” (from Les Miserables). Cara is helping us recognize that even the smallest things in life, as she puts it, “ARE the BIG things.” Be sure to follow Cara on her blog and Facebook for more of her encouraging and inspiring posts! (And to see pictures of her adorable kiddos!)
It was the time that every divorced parent fears – the moment when your heart is ripped from your body as you say goodbye to your precious little ones. His Friday evening had rolled around again, and it was time for hugs and farewells as my boys left to spend the scheduled every other weekend with their father. These are the times that I dreaded the most.
“Bye, Mom! See you Monday! Love you!”
Our middle son jumped down the last three stairs and gave me a high-five as he started toward the door. I caught him and planted a smooch on his freckled cheek. “Blech,” he giggled as he wiped the back of his hand over the place where I had kissed him. He’s not a fan of showing affection through physical touch, so I’m used to him brushing it off.
He turned around and smiled up at me as I gave him a quick hug. “I’ll miss you, Mom! Tell Daddy Joe HI for me and that I miss him, too!”
“I’ll do that, Buddy. I love you so much!”
