There was one thing that happened that just pulled at my heart strings. Earlier in the day I was telling her that I was going to see her Uncle Matthew this weekend and she responded by saying that her mom and dad think I'm not coming back. (Every time I go to Georgia for the weekend my brother tells his children that I'm leaving and never returning to make me feel like a jerk. The first time it happened, my niece ended up in tears because he told her that after I had already left and she was upset that I didn't say good-bye.) Anyway, I figured that I would have to have a talk with her about me moving so it didn't come as a surprise to her.

We were sitting by the fountain and I called her over and said I needed to talk to her about something sad and serious. She sat on my lap and I proceeded to tell her that at the beginning of summer, I would be moving. She didn't seem to be getting the point of it, so I added to it that I would be moving really far away and I wouldn't be able to see her very much. Well about half way through my sentence I totally lost it and started crying (I know I sound like a blubbering mess). When she realized I was crying, she grabbed my face and said, "It's okay, you can come back" and then proceeded to wipe away my tears. Let me remind you... this is a four year old doing this... My heart completely broke in that instant.
