Remember being so excited about the first day of school – that you could hardly sleep?
It all lay ahead – so much to learn and experience.
I have done the parenting “First day” thing FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS!
Eighteen years – And this morning, as we are down to one kid at home – we took the proverbial “First Day Photo” for the last time.
It has all gone so fast and all the years blur together…identified my milestone moments.
Here we are and in one year I will be taking photos of no one. My life will not be over – but forever changed.
This chapter that I dreamed of, prayed for, loved with all my might – will be behind me. And I know that there is no way I can prepare myself except to live each day and each moment with as much truth and awareness and love as I can muster in that moment. I have 3 amazing kids. They came out that way …and together we have been a family. all for one and one for all.
I hope to share this journey, this last leg, in words and photos – here –
and I hope that those of you who can relate will share your experiences – because if not for each other – what do we have?
GOOD LUCK TO COOPER AND THE CLASS OF 2019!!!!!
