The Art of Goodbye

Billie: “Why do we have to say goodbye to everyone all the time?”

“Because ‘Goodbye’ is a great, simple way to say ‘thank you for being in my life.'”

Billie: “what happens if you’re not thankful the person is in your life?”

“Then you hope you only have to say ‘goodbye’ to that person once.”

Billie: “Ok. …Mommy?”

“Yes?”

Billie: “Make sure you say goodbye to me a million times. Every day. And I’ll make sure I kiss you to the sky every time I can.”

“Deal.”
