Saying Goodbye

Oh Sunday at 4:30 in the morning, we had to wake up because my dad had to go to Australia so he could work to get money to pay our bills.

We had to wait at the airport for five and a half hours. Finally his plane arrived. We hugged him goodbye and my brother was crying. We drove home.

It is very hard to live without a dad for one year. It was a very special moment on Sunday and everyone was feeling the same emotion.

  1. Hi Jabez. I am a student at the University of South Alabama and I am in the EDM 310 class. We are in Mobile, Alabama. I enjoyed reading your blog post. I hope that you and your family are doing okay without your dad being around lately. I know that it is a hard thing to have someone you love far away from you for such a long time. While I have never really been separated from either of my parents, my grandparents live about eighteen hours away from me in Pennsylvania, so I do not get to see them too often. Just always remember that your dad is probably missing you as much as you miss him and that he will be back home to you before you know it. Something that might be nice for you to do is keep a journal of all of the things that you do everyday that he is gone and then share it with him when he gets back home. I think that it would be a lot of fun for both of you to read it together when he comes home so that he can see everything that you did since he left.
