We’re home from Franklin and Marshall Parent’s weekend. My mind is full of Erin’s smiles. Oh man. No one tells you when they place that little bundle of joy in your arms the day they are born — about they day they will leave home. How their smiles become the most important things to you. That they are miles and miles away…but happy. It’s all that matters.
This peaceful Sunday night, I spend a bit of it thinking about my destiny as a mom. So many nights rocking a feverish baby. Then up in the middle of the night – chasing bad dreams away. Then — in a flash — you are sitting at graduation wondering — “Where did it all go??”
My grown daughters are my babies. And now, they are my friends. And interesting people. Kind hearted people. I can’t wait until I can see them again.
Until then — I’ll continue to be their soft place to land. And fill my days with….all that comes next.
Life is wonderful. #ChooseHappiness365 (349/365)
Ciao for now…Diane
