Last night I was singing some children’s hymns to Eva to try to get her to fall asleep. She was crying pretty hard but what I’ve learned is that she won’t relax if I’m not relaxed, so the hymns really help me out.
I got to “I Love to See the Temple” and could barely hear myself over her cries. When she finally settled down a bit, I was singing the part of the song that said, “A family is forever.”
It hit me right then that the four months that T.J. will be gone is not very long when you put it into perspective. One day we’ll look back at this summer and laugh at ourselves for thinking it was a challenge. We’ve got a lot ahead of us, I’m sure. And in the scheme of things, four months is nothing.
But, I’ll tell you what… I’m sure going to miss having this handsome guy around.
