The Departure

by Cindy R. Williams

The following is how the writing brain combined with the heart sees the big picture:
Missionary Departure:

Last of the last week lasts! Packed – check, leave for the airport – check, turn back around for “forgot something” – check, small talk chatter avoid the impending bigness of two years apart – check, wait at the the gate bouncing up and down, holding back tears – check, “time to go” melt down by the Mom – check, walked like  man through the gate – check, flying to SLC – check, Only 729 days to go – smile and groan, both at the same time. What a ride!!!!!!


  1. Wow, Cindy! Congrats/Hang in there! Whichever applies! (or both :0)
