July 25, 2007

This date may not mean anything to you, but it's a night I'll never forget.

I flew to Omaha the next day to pick up Craig from Internship. It was the last night alone of our very long journey.

Reprinted from Lackadaisical Motivation, July 25, 2007:

Well, this is it.


Our final night apart.

My last night going to sleep alone.

My last morning waking up alone.

My last night of late night phone calls.

No more tearful airport goodbyes.

Tomorrow starts the rest of my life.


It’s here.

Words cannot express how I feel.

Years of sacrifice are behind us.

My heavy heart is getting lighter.

“I love yous” will be accompanied by hugs and kisses now.

I can’t believe it’s almost over.

The tears streaming down my cheeks are of joy and relief.

Thank you, God.

Thank you, God.


  1. Oh my gosh! Now I'm crying! So happy it all worked out!

  2. Sniff, sniff. Bubs was waiting until you were ready.

  3. Oh, by the way, July 25 was Grandma Mitchell's birthday. So, indeed, it is a special day all around.
