I just can’t think of a better title than that. Today was the day for new students to show up on campus and move into their rooms to begin their college adventure. It was an amazing day, and I can write about the day but I want to start with the most beautiful love.
I just watch a bunch of parents say goodbye to their babies. We had ring side seats to the drama of life – saying goodbye. There was the spectrum from kids that wanted their parents to leave – to parents that didn’t want to leave – and parents that wanted to leave their kids – and parents that couldn’t let go. What can I say? I don’t have kids and have no idea what they have to go through in letting their children go. One day I will know this, but for today, I was able to be witness to the most beautiful love – the love that a parent has for their child and the safety that a child has to leave in order to continue the journey. It was beautiful. I can’t describe to you how beautiful it is to see students and parents crying. It’s a beautiful love.
