Southhampton, England 1815

          Was it wicked to say goodbye with a smile? Wrong to feel happy about leaving one’s family behind? Surely only a sinner’s heart would harbor such uncharitable emotions…wouldn’t it?

 

Reader friends I’d love to hear from you:

What do you think? It is wrong to feel happy about leaving one’s family?
Have you ever had to say good-bye to family and not know when if ever you’d see them again?
