“The Italian Goodbye”

There are plenty of chuckles when it comes to goodbyes.

You know you’re afflicted with this condition when your spouse comes up behind you and whispers, “Honey, you’ve already said ‘Goodbye’ to them a couple of times.

What is it that makes me not want to leave when I’m being pulled by my shirt by the patient saint near the doorway?

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: God likes company or else he wouldn’t have created earth nor heaven.

The Lord be with all of you…Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence…Greet those who love us in the faith…What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

2 Thessalonians 3:16b NASB, Psalm 21:6 NASB, Titus 3:15 NASB, Psalm 8:4 KJV
