I’ve been thinking about the time when I came to visit you and meet your family in Texas. It was my first time flying, and I did it all by myself. It was a big deal to me. Leaving you was so hard. I remember waking up that morning and getting ready, and I was so calm and I didn’t understand why. I said goodbye and thanked your Mama and your Papa and we packed up the car and headed to the airport. That’s when it kicked in. I was sad, and I wanted nothing more for you to turn the car around and take me back home with you. A sad sounding song came on and you changed it to “You! Me! Dancing!” by Los Campesinos. That song will forever be burned in my brain, and will be forever connected to this memory.
We got to the airport and when I was walking away I knew you were there waiting for me to turn around and wave or something. But I couldn’t. Because I KNEW with all of my heart that I would not have gotten on that plane had I turned around and looked at you. I would have refused.
I love you lots. I just can’t help it.
