Hello Goodbye, #1190


Hello and Goodbye – two of the most bittersweet words in the English language.    Yesterday, I said goodbye to my sweet girl as she left for a week of overnight camp.  She was so happy.  Here she is with her girls.

My girl was simply in her element, and her goodbye to me barely lasted a half of a second.  I did manage one last squeeze as she boarded on that bus with a quick “I love you,” but she barely looked over her shoulder as she carried my love with her for the next week.

I can’t wait until Friday evening.  That’s when we get our hello.  Of course, the hello will be bittersweet, too, as it will also be short-lived.  She’ll be heading out again next Tuesday morning with her brother back to camp.  That will be a really hard goodbye.  Two weeks with both of the kids gone.  Uggghhh.

That’s my life for the next month….hellos and goodbyes.  Of course, there is always a Beatles song perfect for every moment, and today I am gripping onto their “Hello Goodbye.”  I’m sure you can all understand where I am coming from, so enjoy the tune, and goodbye for now!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
