Saying Goodbyes to Mom

Bags packed, I'm traveling to Sacramento today and then back to Iowa tomorrow. 

Saying goodbyes is sometimes perfunctory but not when goodbyes are to someone 91 years old. 

We never know if we'll see someone again, even with the most everyday partings. Our hellos should always be full of joy and our goodbyes full of appreciation. What is that expression? There is no joy in the small.

Let our hearts be full and the new year blessed with many appreciations of those whom we share our lives with.
