Parting is such sweet sorrow

I find my eyes suddenly welling up with tears. No predicting when. I have no control. Why? Good grief. You’d think I’d be used to this by now. All because this morning we took three of our grandchildren and their parents to the airport for their return flight to America. They hadn’t been with us …
