Separation Anxiety

Pardon me while I take time out for a little, woe-is-me self pity party.  My daughter left for college (in Colorado, in case you didn't get that from the photo) and now I have an empty next.  Yes, it sounds all cliche, but that was when it was about someone else.  Now that it's about me, it's different, because let's face it, we humans are basically a self centered lot.

The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity getting her ready.  In the middle of all that, she took time to donate to Locks of Love.  This is her (on the left) when she graduated three months ago.  See how long her hair was?

She was able to donate and still have hair that is past her shoulders.  The new shorter length should be much easier, which will be great for a busy student. This is her and her roommate in their dorm room.  Swanky, huh?

After getting her all settled in, we made the long drive home.  To an empty house.  Today I found one of her socks left behind in the dryer.  *sigh*  THIS should not make a grown woman cry.

  1. The sock IS sad! :( Boo-hoo! How fast they grow up... quiet & calm was something I treasured & arranged years ago & now, thinking of my daughter's Mother's Day card to me this year saying her favorite childhood memories are of our laughing, busy house that made her feel so safe & happy, I'm so glad she remembers our home with joy. I hoped to create forever joy & happiness for them all! I'm sure you did too, and looking at your daughter's generous & smiling spirit, you succeeded beautifully. She'll always have you & your home close in her heart!


I'd love to hear from you!
