Dear Kid,

good bye might not be as easy as i thought
And here we are, back to goodbye.

Painful though parting be, I bow to you as I see you off to distant clouds. ~Emperor Saga

Goodbyes are generally not easy, and some are more difficult than others.

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~Carol Sobieski and Thomas Meehan, Annie

I know it’s time for you to head off for your next semester, but—as always—I have mixed feelings. I’m excited for the things you’ll learn and the experiences you’ll have, but I’ll miss you.

Where is the good in goodbye? ~Meredith Willson, The Music Man

Take some time this semester to enjoy being in college.

Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I’ll miss you
Until we meet again!
~Author Unknown

Drive safe, sweetie. Study hard. Call occasionally.

Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz

Until we next see you! Have a great semester.

Love, Mom
