Goodbyes Suck

Hellos are so much happier than Goodbyes.

Hellos are full of promise and fun.
They are all about what is going to happen and what could be.

Goodbyes feel so final.
They are an ending.

Hellos are giggles, stories and new memories being made.

Goodbyes leave you feeling a bit empty and like something's missing.

Hellos are adventurous.
Hellos are making new friends.
Hellos are happy.

Goodbyes are a big heavy sigh.
I don't do them well.

Yes, but without goodbyes there would be no hellos to look forward to. Hugs!

I agree - goodbyes are always hard. I don't do them well - except perhaps to eight people who leave my small house. But, hey, I didn't say that!! Love my kids/grandkids - really I do!

not goodbyes....

next time....they can't come back to continue the fun if they don't leave first..that's what I tell myself

I'm sure they don't want to leave as much as you want them to stay..your such a fun person to be with!!!

You are right - they suck....which is why it is so wonderful you have so many adventures and hellos in your life.

Hello, Jujubee.

Nothing good in goodbyes.
We just say "It's not a goodbye. It's a see you later!"

A lovely sentiment by KB! (But it IS hard; now that my mom is older, I have a little cry every time I leave her...).
