Saturday, January 10, 2015 was another sad day because we had to say good-bye to Alexis again for this next semester. This is so hard as a mother to watch your children get older and spread their wings. Alexis is so far away… across two oceans! Again, the train station brought tears! There is something surreal about going to a train station and sending my child off clear across the world! I am grateful at the train station we can watch her board and see her off. It breaks at my heartstrings, but it is also comforting to be with her until the last second! I can’t wait until all 9 of us are together again!
Alexis is such a sweet daughter and daughter of God! I thank the Lord everyday for making me the luckiest mother with her presence in my life! She is so much fun! While here, she had a “wear your converse shoes day”. She wanted all of us to feel like we were connected by our shoes! It is a fun “tie” she has with Jack and Sophie! We miss little things like this, that Alexis does!
