And he's off! Just proves that you can do things even when you aren't sure how to.
As I suspected, the most abundant tears came from my son. But it's my quiet daughter (the thinker) who worries me a bit. She keeps things in ... and I know she feels things deeply. We all seemed to recover pretty well today.
Thank you all for so many kind words and encouragement. I'm back on track with my eating now, as well. Today it was juice/lemonade until 5:00 and then a salad and some veggie soup. I may go into full juice fasting mode starting tomorrow, though. Somehow I'll have to work up enough self-discipline to keep up my healthy eating plan after he returns for good next March/April.
Okay, just wanted to check in and let you know that I'm doing fine and appreciating all of you! God bless and FAST on!!
