I thought I was handling this whole “moving to the other side of the world” thing pretty well. Throughout this year-long process there have been moments here and there where it has been hard, but overall I haven’t had any BIG moments of grief. You may be surprised to see me use the word grief, but it fits. Grief doesn’t just happen when we lose someone, it comes when we experience any type of loss.
One source of grief came unexpectedly for me. It started a month ago when we took our boys to a minor league baseball game. Or as Rush says, “a Go Knights baseball game!” Rush loves the Go Knights baseball team. We went to several games last year and he has never forgotten the experience. This was Finn’s first game and I can now say that he officially LOVES baseball. The kid could not stop talking about it. Even today he asked me to watch baseball. I will find a video on ESPN just so he can watch a highlight or two.
