I am writing with a heavy heart as I prepare to send off my firstborn to college. I am so very saddened at the thought of not having her around every day. I never thought it would be so hard. I figured we'd both be ready. But I don't think you ever know how you'll feel about something until you're experiencing it. I think we're both in an overwhelmed state of denial. Nonetheless, she'll be out of the nest next week.
And I know she'll have the time of her life.
And my heart will heal.
I'll enjoy some one on one time with my younger bird. And avoid thinking about the future for a little while.
For those of you who are also releasing your little birds. My thoughts are with you.
