We just left the season of lasts. Last Times. Or what we would call “the-last-time-we…”. Or, at least, Last Times for a While.
We said it so many times over the past month that I think the kids became tone deaf to the idea, but it’s important to mark those times as they happen and allow everyone to say goodbye in their own way.
We heard it a few times, “I didn’t realize we wouldn’t see Aunt Jen’s house again.” Sometimes you miss it and your opportunity is gone.
Here are some of the last times we noted:
- The last Chick-Fil-A meal.
- The last visit to Shannon’s Aunt and Uncle’s.
- The last time they saw their cousins, and Aunts and Uncles.
- The last time we saw Grandmas and Grandpa.
And these last times are hard. What’s important is that we get a chance to note it and a chance to say goodbye.
We turn now to “first things”.
What is the first thing you’ll do…
