Good bye for now

Dear Laurel,

Isn't good bye the hardest thing we ever say, and isn't that the time so many pull away?  Day before yesterday my eldest went to a hospice facility to be with her friend Karen while Karen's mother was in her final hours here.  I am so proud of her for intentionally stepping into that hard place, for being present with her friend, and for putting her hands on that mom and saying, "Good bye for now."  The promise of heaven is so sure and so sweet, and the courageous love of a friend is beautiful.

All my best,
