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.
