1LinerWednesday – We Know When It Is Time

Today I will make my airline reservations to go home. It has been a month today that I flew to Florida when my daughter was rushed to the ER. To see her now is such an amazing improvement. We are all so thankful for her recovery. I appreciate everyone who has extended their good wishes to us and those who have taken the time to read and share her blog.

We have always had a close bond, and this experience has only strengthened that bond. It will still be three weeks before she can lift her daughter or do much to help around the house, but they will be ok. I asked her last night if she was ready for me to go and she said no. 😉 Of course neither of us are ready but we both know that they are all ok now.

My daughter-in-law has a lot on her plate these next few weeks. She will pick up the cooking and cleaning I have been doing, or she will let the unnecessary things slide. I know she will take care of her family until my daughter is able to help more. She has always been an amazing spouse and mother and I know the love will see her through this. I love her so very much.

I have been telling my granddaughter I will be going home soon. She thinks I live here now. I do not want her to be surprised that I am leaving and I do not want to see her sad. She loves her mommies so much and they cherish her, so I know she will be ok. Not as sure about grandma, though.

I know my husband is missing me and I am missing him. It will be nice to get back into our routine and enjoy autumn together. The cool nights, the fall breezes, and the color of the season are all things we look forward to sharing.

So many compartments in this heart of mine. So much love

  1. Despite the sadness at leaving Florida, you know that Melissa is in good hands. And your long break away from home will renew the love shared between you and your husband. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. What a privilege to really get to know your granddaughter for an extended time. Even though it was a dreadful experience for your daughter, much good did come from it in strengthening all your relationships.

    1. Yes to everything you said, Jill. We found a temporary normal and now it is time for all of us to return to our routines. I feel so blessed by the outcome.

  3. How wonderful that these bonds have been strengthened and you’ve had this time. I know it will stretch your heart to leave, but the bond will remain. I’m sending a prayer and wishes for safe travels home.

  4. I know you’ve been prepping Mia for you leaving… but what about us? I believe you live here too and am not so sure my heart can take you leaving.
    You have been a Godsend. I have no idea how we would’ve done this without you. I know we would’ve figured it out, but I’m so grateful I didn’t have to. Not only am I eternally grateful for you and all you’ve done for us… but despite the tough moments, this has been a bonding experience for all of us that I will cherish, always.
    I love you, beyond words. I am so blessed and filled with gratitude!
