|Move In Day|
Give without remembering and take without forgetting
Truly words to live by, as a friend, a mother or a partner. Recently my daughter went off to college. I took the week off to help her pack up for the big move. Nothing like 17 years flashing before your eyes on a non-stop movie screen. It has been such a pleasure to watch her grow over the years, and to blossom into the amazing person that she is today. And after all you hope for your child, it happens in a flash and you are left standing in the empty room. I am so proud and happy for her, but it will take some time for me to get used to her no longer living at home.
I've had my lovely gift from Susan sitting next to me (right by my beading chair) for the last 2 months as a daily reminder. And now I need to find a permanent home for this perfect gift. How did she know I'd need this one?
