yes, I am at it again....4 days left

those that read my blog...the whole four of you.....LOL I am sure you are tired of my blogs already. but I find them helpful, at a not so easy time right a mere 4 days my daughter is leaving the only home she has ever known and going off to college and I have to say that scares me a lot!! I know that she knows we will always be here for her, that we did "good" by her, that we raised her right and all the other things that people brain knows this, it really does, BUT my heart, that's a different does not care that we raised her right, it does not care that she is only a phone call, instant message, web cam view, email just knows that she is going to be GONE, AWAY, OUT OF SIGHT, NOT HERE....and it HURTS....yeah, that about covers it....its an ache that I cannot describe, and only until you experience this first hand will you fully understand.....I for one never dreamed it would "feel" this way....never, I thought sure I would feel sad....but the "ache" I feel is a mean ass feeling....its just something that is there and really does not want to go away....I will do my best to keep my chin up and be strong for her, and as we are driving away then and only then will I totally lose it!!! at least I HOPE I can accomplish that!!!

Wendi I know how I'm feeling about my daughter starting kindergarden I can't even imagine how I'll feel when she leaves home. Hugs.

((HUGS)) Wendi, you can and will get thru this. I can only imagine how you are feeling. Take pride that she is a good, smart, stand up for herself kinda girl. We will be here for you.

Hi from the UK - Have put your button on my blog :-) Don't worry, although it hurts now, the pride you will feel when your daughter does well at college and in life(and I'm sure she will - she obviosly has a great family!) will ease the pain. The sad truth is we have to let them fly the nest and find their own wings sooner or later, but I am sure she will always return to those who love her the most no matter how far she flies :-)
