Yesterday was the return portion of Family Road Trip ’07. After worshiping together at the Grapevine Church of Christ, we enjoyed some excellent Texas BBQ at Spring Creek Barbecue, then said our good-byes.

If it was an emotional good-bye, we did a good job of not showing it. Felt more strange than anything else: so much is scheduled to happen between now and next summer, one would think we’d be overcome with… well, some kind of emotion I guess. But maybe emotion is overrated. Sometimes you just have to get on with it.

I heard myself say things like…

“Jessica, we’ll be thinking about you during your surgery.”
“Jacquelyn, hope your last year of college goes well.”
“John Mark, be careful driving to North Carolina to start your new life.”
“Joseph and Hillary, we’ll see you at your wedding next May.”
“Josh, have fun moving to New York City.”

Snippets from the theme song to my blog come to mind: days turn to minutes, and minutes to memories… you are young and you are the future… be the best you can…
