I will try not to cry as I type this....
Just like that, my baby girl is off to college. I have a range of emotions, from excitement for her, to sadness for me. Sad to see such a fun time come to an end.
I can honestly say, that parenting has been such a joy to me. I have loved being a mommy and pretty much enjoying "most" seasons of these kids life.
I know it is not over, and it is not like I will never see her again, it is just different. A change in seasons.
She is off to a small Christian school and I pray everyday that she clings to Jesus and that she makes good decisions.
After all, this is what we are to do. Raise children up and send them out. Sending them out is the hard part.
My girl is such a joy and full of energy, light and excitement. The house will not be the same without her. Her kitty cat is grieving right along with me.
After getting her set in her dorm, my hubs and I enjoyed a few days at a small beach house.
The grands joined us a couple of days later.
That was great time of distraction.
THEN I CAME HOME...
to a quiet house.
I have a ton of small projects to get me through and I keep my focus on Jesus.
The good news, is she is not that far away...
And I get to see her tomorrow for her birthday.
