I spent this past Saturday with my daughter looking for a suitable outfit for her upcoming job interviews as she will be graduating from college in December. As I shared in her excitement and trepidation of her job search and future independence, I couldn’t help but feel sad that my little girl has grown up and soon will be on her own.
Can you really let go? How do you let go?
I remember breaking down in a grocery store soon after my son left for college because I noticed I’d picked up his favorite food. I still find myself going into their rooms….it’s been a few years since both have left home, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier for this particular mom.
I wish my mother was here…. for guidance and advice….I miss her so very much.
I hope I was a good mother ~ I hope they will remember the lessons ~ I hope they’ll make good decisions ~ I hope they know how much I love them ~ I hope they’ll find happiness ~ I hope they’ll remember to call home ~ I hope they don’t have to face hardships ~ I hope they know I’m always here for them ~ I hope they’ll be safe ~ I hope they’re eating healthy ~ I hope they’re praying ~ I hope ~ I hope ~
Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had, and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed. ~Linda Wooten
