My step-son Joe left today to move to Austin, Texas 🙁 That’s a 19 hour drive people!
I first met Joe when he was a 10 year old, slightly pudgy boy with a buzz hair cut. I know it had to be hard seeing his Dad with someone other than his Mom, but he warmed up to me pretty quickly.
I am an affectionate person and I loved hugging him from the get go. Then maybe after about a year, we were in our new house, watching t.v. and bit by bit Joe sat a bit closer, a bit closer to me, until I had my arm around him and we watched the rest of the show like that – not sure if he remembers that, but I do!
I like to call this one: tree lover
And I like to call this picture his “model” picture!
Joe and Hannah stopped by my office yesterday morning so he could say good-bye. I tried to keep the conversation light and quick because I didn’t want to cry!
We hugged, said I’ll miss you and I love you and they walked away.
It wasn’t until they turned the corner . . . then I cried. 🙁
I’ll miss you Joe and I love you! “See” you on Facebook 😀
