because my little one leaves the nest tomorrow. I certainly knew, as a mom, it would happen sooner or later. But I guess you just can never be quite ready. At the age of 23....not to long from 24, I guess I did pretty well having her around this long.
At the same time that I'm deeply saddened, I'm also deeply proud. She is a bright and beautiful young woman with a great future ahead. She has landed her first big job and is moving to her first apartment closer to work. Yes....it'll be over an hour away from "home", but I realize it could have been much worse.
As a mom I feel I'm due my moment of tears....but I also know deep in my heart that this will pass and good things are ahead!
