... casting my burden on the Lord, and not taking the burden back again.
... acknowledging that I'm not in control anyway, and trusting God for the daily "stuff" as I trust Him for eternity.
... allowing other people to be who they are and do what they will do. God gave them the same free will that He gave to me. I have to remember that He will work in their lives as He does in mine.
... saying goodbye with hope for the future, and not despair.
... hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
... wisdom, pure and simple.
... one of the hardest things I will ever do.
