It came and went: Jason's last day. Full of tears, prayers and many hugs, we got through it. I was a little thankful to have Into The Woods to take my mind off of it.
This morning at Bible study/company meeting, Jason and Jeff, who is also leaving this week to work for our church, were surrounded by our friends/co-workers with prayers. It was pretty beautiful yet painful to watch. I sat back on purpose to avoid the overwhelming emotion that was already swelling within me. I was fighting back tears all morning. (The tears won.) Jason then had to stand up and address everyone with a final 'good-bye.' That's when I officially lost the battle with the crying. There is just something about seeing your spouse cry that cuts your heart open.
He's amazing. What can I say? So many people adore him, and rightfully so. After work over 20 of our co-workers and their families ate dinner with us at Chuys. (I can't believe Jason actually thought no one was going to come. HA!) It was a good closure. But I'm afraid for tomorrow. Afraid that tomorrow is going to be EVEN HARDER than today. (sigh)
