Goodbye, Jim and Lyndsay

My son and his daughter headed home to Georgia this morning, on this day before my 64th birthday (thanks to all who have wished me happy birthday).

Bobby Bare said it best:

Softly close the door behind you
How it hurts me to see you go
Gently break the tie that binds you
And this heart that loves you so.

If you're sure you won't be staying
Then just walk on out of my life
There's just two words left for saying
And the Lord knows how I hate goodbyes.

And nothing's born to live forever
But oh, how it hurts to see it die
First it's always then it's never
And the Lord knows how I hate goodbyes.

--- Instrumental ---

Nothing's born to live forever
But oh, how it hurts to see it die
First it's always then it's never
And the Lord knows how I hate goodbyes...

Thanks, Debbie, for sending Jim and Lyndsay here to spend a week.  You'll never know how we appreciate it.  Your baby girl is an angel, a perfect little southern belle:  Good manners, undemanding, and loving.  You've done a good job.

I'm sure it was just as hard for him to pull out of the driveway as it was for you to watch him do it.  Cherish the memories that were made this past week.  

Happy Birthday a few hours early !

I love that poem or is it song?  It's beautiful.  Hard to say goodbye when you've had such a nice time with friends or relatives.
