And Then She Was Gone…

I have a love – hate relationship with the Nashville Airport.

When friends come to visit…I love it. But when they leave…I hate it.

Last week, my daughter, Kaitlyn arrived in the afternoon and for seven glorious days, I had her all to myself. There were no distractions – just the two of us hanging out and having fun. We crammed more things into several days than I thought possible.

We laughed…

We hugged...

We cuddled… (Yep…she still likes to cuddle. Who doesn’t?)

We talked about everything…

We explored and discovered…

We walked and talked some more…



We met new people and we visited farms and hung out with alpacas!


We shopped…

We ate and we listened to music…


And then it happened.

Her time here came to an end and today…She left this morning at 9:10 am and now…

My heart hurts and I can’t make the tears stop falling.

This was a really good visit. This was the kind of visit that creates lasting memories. But it also makes me feel so sad inside, because the struggle is that I love my new home in Franklin, Tennessee, but…

I miss my girl. I miss her smile. I miss her energy. I miss her face. I miss her laugh. I just miss her.

And you would too, if you knew her.

I have to admit that I haven’t figured out how to manage my emotions very well.

I am fully aware that this was my choice…our choice to move…but choices have consequences and the one for me is that there are so many times when my life feels empty without my Kaitlyn.

So today, I hate the Nashville airport because she left and there’s a hole in my heart and I miss her so much.


Have you ever made a decision that just changes everything? Will you share your thoughts about this with me? I could use some perspective today.
