It is Tunes Tuesday and the first day of October! My kids are off to school, and after a nice three day weekend my husband is back to work and I am here with my menagerie of dogs once again.
The song that resonates with me most today is the classic “Every Time I Say Goodbye” performed by Ella Fitzgerald. Every time I say goodbye to that man of mine I die just a little, but every time we say hello I am once again restored. I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss my husband when he is on the road. Once he
is gone the kids and I fall into a day to day routine until he returns. It has always been hardest the day he leaves for me. I love it when he is home, and I always want him to stay. I want the good times to last. Unfortunately time goes so fast when he is home. We are always so busy. Before we know it, it is time to say goodbye once again and I die just a little. I often wonder if he feels the same. Unfortunately, this is his job and the life we chose so we make the best of it because the bills keep a coming demanding payment.
From the moment we part I focus on all I need to do. I keep busy. I hope someday the time will come when we say more hellos than goodbyes. Until then, I will take it one day at a time and burn up the air waves from my cell phone to his.
