New Days Dawning
Today was the last day I knew you as you were and I am excited about who you are about to become. It's surreal to ponder this long life lived as tears fill my eyes. My mommy duties are gearing up and new days are dawning. Lunch packed, backpack filled, lists checked, forms filled, shots taken, teeth clean, hair cut (mommy style), new clothes set out, new shoes waiting for little feet, all is right, plan in place. I think. And tomorrow, just like that, we will walk together as we always do, down the hall and into something new. This new day dawns on me too. Wonderful surprises, tough situations, enormous pressures, new relationships, fabulous experiences, vast memories. It's today, sweet baby, that you leave the nest on another flight. This journey, different from the last, will be exciting for us all. And much like the road from whence you came, this journey alike will be filled with love, laughter and joy.
