Talk about a conflict of emotions!
These were just a few of the the thoughts running
through my head as we dropped Alex off at the MTC.
Did I teach him enough?
I can't let go of him-
I am so proud I just might burst-
Remember what if feels like to have him hug you-
What if he hates his first companion?
Can I just go with him for the first day?
My family is never going to be the same-
Heavenly Father, give me the strength to let go-
Did I teach him how to sew on a button?
Does he know how much I love him?
Does he know how much I love the Lord?
In the end I did let go--physically!
I am still working on emotionally!
God be with you 'till we meet again, Elder Forsyth.
