Grateful Goodbye

It's going to take everything I've got not to gripe and complain in tonight's post.  We just got back from taking Steel to the airport to go back to school.  His time here was too short.  Even though he'll be back in about 3 weeks, I really hated to see him go this time.  Seeing him doing so well, and having him home really did us some good.  It was a big sigh of relief. I'm also hating the part that his flight has been delayed twice and is not scheduled to leave until 11:00pm.  He has to be in class at 9:00 am for a presentation tomorrow.

Ugh... I hate this part.

But as always, there is grace.  We were graced with his presence for 5 1/2 days... We celebrated a holiday with him, at home and all was as it should be again.  We saw his recovery for our own eyes, and witnessed the relief in others when they saw him for the first time.  We laughed and reminisced and were reminded of the miracle of healing.  With all of this gift it is difficult to justify the whining....

So I won't give in to the temptation.
