Today was one of the most difficult days of my life. Today, I left a piece of me in south Texas. I drove away from Thing 1; my baby girl, leaving her to start a new life and attend Graduate school at Texas A & M University.
I cried. Hard. I’m still crying. I miss her so much. I know this is something that every parent experiences, and I know that I have four more that will fly away from my nest; but damn it… Does it have to hurt this bad?
My daughter and I have been through A LOT together these past few years, with the shaky relationship between me and her father to being my rock during my divorce. I was INCREDIBLY blessed with an amazing daughter, and I am thrilled beyond belief at what an amazing adult she has become.
Headed back down again in a few weeks to celebrate my birthday with her and my love, and I cannot wait to see her! I know we’re going to have lots, and lots, and lots of face-timing for the next 18 months while she finishes up her Masters Degree; and I cannot wait to have her back closer to home.
Until September my sweet baby girl, I love you to the moon and back ❤
