Explanation of “Inside the mind of a seminary wife”

I had the blessing of meeting up with a wonderful sem-wife friend of mine last night. Her husband is just finishing his vicarage year and they are heading back to seminary.

Talking with her made me remember about how it felt to see all my sem friends leave for vicarage last summer and Toby and I staying behind to watch a whole new set of families move in to take their spots. It was hard. Moving and transitioning and introductions and farewells is the name of the game, and it can be tiring and sad after three years of hellos and goodbyes.

This piece is a reflection on the joy and the hurt of loving and leaving people, and of our need to know and be known by others.
