Tomorrow Bailey leaves for Italy. I have watched her struggle a bit this week with trying to do all the things she wants to do and people she wants to see before she leaves. In a nutshell, I am watching her heart break a tiny piece at a time. I know this. She doesn't know it so much. She just knows that it's hard.
The world is about to open up for her. I know this. She just knows that she will be a long way away without the use of texting. God is working in her and is going to work through her. I know this. She is just confused as to what all is happening.
So, though I will cry at the airport tomorrow, I can't help but smile knowing that her life is beginning! I am proud of her for being a woman of integrity and following through with this even though it is hard for her.
When she comes back on December 15, she will have a different look about her. I know this. She will understand it all then.
