“Leap and the net will appear.” ~ zen saying
our daughter is moving on campus. granted the campus is only about 25 minutes from here, but still.
so many mixed emotions. i am very excited for her…a little more freedom, meeting new friends, new adventures. i remember my excitement when i went away to college.
but then i remember what i did in college and i become a bundle of nerves…will that extra freedom turn into bad choices, will she meet friends that aren’t the greatest match for her, will those adventures take a wrong turn.
i know, i know – cut the cord mom. but let me tell you, it’s hard. i think the part that worries me most is that she works and she’ll be driving back and forth at night. and since she has access to her vehicle, will she be driving all over creation when i think she’s at school? honestly, i could go on and on and on right now. the things that pop into my head.
i just need to take a deep breath and hope that we’ve taught her well. hope that she calls home often to let us know she’s safe and doing great. and pray all the time that God is watching over her.
so far, the only good thing about this move is that she has to clean her room before she leaves sunday morning…because i do not want to have to look in and see this anymore.
keeping it real folks? isn’t that horrible?
