I wish that I could say that the past few months have been hectic… spending time with my daughter. Unfortunately, it has only been a few weeks since she got back from college, and already she has left for the summer!
We had to cram doctors’ appointments in before heading out on our "road trip" to Colorado. We took a week to drive up and visit my brother and my mother and her beau, and that was indeed hectic… As it turns out, I think that we spent more time driving than actually visiting! Once back from Colorado it was back to more appointments… a lot of "busy time."
Yesterday, my husband and I drove our daughter to her summer job and got her situated so that she can begin work on Monday. Already I miss her! It sure is difficult when our "little ones" grow up, isn’t it?
As I sit here typing this blog, I am thinking of several friends who have had their "little ones" grow up WAY TOO FAST! They, too, have to rely on cell phones and emails to keep in touch with their children.
One of my friends has a son who visited last month and her daughter is visiting this month… Life is good!
Two friends have daughters who have returned to live "back home" with their own children… Grandchildren bring all of the fun, but none of the strict rules… Can’t beat that!
My sister has been lucky… Both of her grown children live in the same city as she does… They have become her best friends (and allies!) And, my husband and I have been very fortunate because our son lives right here in San Antonio.
Hey there, Baby Girl, I sure do miss you! … BUT… The moral of this blog is probably best found by NOT looking at a gift horse while holding a half-full glass!
