letting go

it's time. I have to let go.

So, come 5:30am Tuesday, I will let go.

My "baby" girl will drive off, car loaded to the hilt, heading to California for her sr. year of school. Driving on her own, her head full of dreams, plans and adventures.

It's a journey she wants do to on her own. No matter how much I want to take off work and drive with her, to guide her, to tell her where to merge, which lane to get in, what spot of town not to stop in, she has to do this on her own. And I will let her.

I will worry. For 3 days I will fret, call her constantly on her cell and probably be a basket case. But I will let her go.

And I will be happy for her.

Big hugs to you my friend, I know how that feels. Neither of mine currently live in the same state that I do, they arent far away, but they aren't here. Sometimes I need them, somtimes I wish they were both here with me even though my house is too small to house them both at the same time. I miss their laughter. My daughter went throught the graduation ceremony at her school in June but actually finishes college in a few weeks and is coming home then. It's hard for her to come home. She's used to living on her own.... PLus she has Riley the Wonder Beagle, the most neurotic dog in the world with her! OK, enough about me. They fly away but they come back, Mom.
