Heart break and heart ache,
Bittersweet goodbyes today,
Today is day one of saying goodbye at school and my heart simply feels too full. The love and sadness of the day fills me with both joy and a deep sense of loss. My students have become part of my family and saying goodbye just hurts, especially when they ask me not to go, write such heart-felt goodbye notes and hug attack me. They are so worried that I will forget them, but that is impossible. They have left their hand-prints on my heart and there they will stay.
