and a song in my heart I bid my great big kid adieu last night. He left for Melbourne, Australia with his father...back to visit the place where he was born. A place he has not been since he was three months old and in my arms. Sending him off on this journey without being by his side has been odd for me. I cried a salty combination of tears of ache and tears of joy as he walked out the door. So happy for him to go, so odd to not be there to see his face.
My salve? I am spontaneously getting in my car this morning, full tank of gas and heading out on a journey of my own. Perhaps I'll stop in, leave you some crumbs as to where I've gone. Or perhaps I will see you all in a week. Either way, I'll be the girl with the sunroof open and all the windows down singing at the top of my lungs. I hear that's the perfect cure for throat lumps :)
