Just got home from work.
My son's girlfriend of over 4 years was driving away as I pulled into the drive-way.
She had just broken up with him.
I gave Tom a hug and said I was so sorry.
She's a great young lady and I know how much he loves her.
Shortly after my daughter called to let me know her beloved trainer for the Equestrian team at college, for the last 2 years, had just announced her retirement and would be leaving in a few weeks.
After a prolonged silence I said I was so sorry.
She's a wonderful, intuitive woman and she and Ellie have a special bond.
Both children are heartbroken.
I'm heartbroken for them.
Both are resilient and of strong faith but are really hurting. We will work through things.
I pray that I'll say and do the right things to help them navigate through these life events.
I just really miss T's wisdom and physical presence next to me.
