It’s Friday again! Time for Five-Minute Friday with thegypsymama.com. The rules are that you write on the given topic for a full five minutes with no editing and then let it go. Today’s topic: Good-bye
I’m having a hard time with this one. I’m trying really hard not to have a heavy heart with this one. It’s just hard to not think about how hard saying good-bye is. I think about all of the times I’ve said it to friends, family and even people I barely know.
The big, really big times though are the lasting good-byes. Those that make you pray that person’s soul is saved so they’ll be waiting for you in Heaven. Those good-byes when you know it could very well be the last time you see that person in this world.
The worst ones though, are those good-byes that you said without knowing they were the last ones. Like when my mom passed away unexpectedly. I couldn’t even remember what we had last talked about. Did I remember to tell her I loved her? They are the hardest because you can’t remember them. There isn’t that to cling to…to hold onto…toknow that you said your last good-bye without rushing. I don’t remember if we hugged. I don’t remember if we cried. I just remember that I thought I would see her the next summer. Now I don’t know if I’ll ever see her again.
