I lingered today. Debbie got in this morning and I spent the afternoon with the kids but I did not want to leave. I just wanted to linger. So that is what I did. I left the girls playing outside. I just have to trust that they will be ok and will not be too upset when I return. I cried one of those good ugly cries for about 10 minutes and then flipped the switch. It will be hard leaving the kids but I am going to savor and give everything I have to this experience. I’ve waited too long not to.
The Day Before I left
