The “Goodbyes” of Life

One doesn’t get too far in life before experiencing grief. As a child, we all said a tearful goodbye to a pet or felt the pain and loneliness that comes when a childhood friend moves away. These experiences come to us early in life.

As the years pass, we look back and remember those sad times as a child, knowing now that it was only the beginning of the “Goodbye’s” of life.

  1. That is true, as my first grief was having to leave the school I went to in kindergarten and then a couple of years later my first best friend. It was the beginning of constant good-byes being a child in a military family.
