Mel and Tyler's Last Day
This is our last day together as Mel and Tyler are leaving by train for the East tomorrow. Man, I hate when our kids leave - no matter if they are going home (Heather and Jonathan in Calgary - Naomi and Jerry just 20 minutes away - Darrin in Calgary too) or going around the world! Good-byes make me cry! And yes, they will all tell you that Mom cries everytime!!!
Anyway, I digree -
These 2 are taking the train across Canada, with stops along the way in Ontario and Quebec to visit friends and family. They'll be in Nova Scotia in early September to spend some time with Tyler's family and deal with stuff (and there's lots of stuff!). Then on September 23, they are flying to Poland where Tyler will begin his medical school studies at the University of Silesia in Katowice. Our hearts are full of joy that these 2 have so much faith and confidence to consider doing such a monumental thing, and they are full of worry and concern at all that they will have to face so far away from home. I need to do a whole bunch more praying as I bake pumpkin cheesecake and make a special supper for them. I need your prayers for me today, my dear friends - TIA!!!
So they are going to be in Poland for 4 years - and yes, I am going to visit ASAP!!! Europe - here I come - at long last!
