So Many Firsts

My daughter is at the eye doctor today.

She called and made an appointment yesterday to have her eyes checked. What an adult thing to do. I’m in awe watching her set her sails.

We raise them to the best of our ability, and then watch them as they go.

I’m not going to try and catch you up on what all has happened. I will let her do that in her own words. She has changed/grown so much this year.

I feel like today, we hit a milestone. The beginning of the ‘Mission accomplished’ phase of the journey.

The day I left her father, she saw me truly follow my heart, and she’s been watching me do so ever since. It didn’t surprise me one bit when she said, “I want to spend Christmas in England this year.” It will be the first Christmas we didn’t celebrate together.

My daughter writes. Photography is her love, but her words add life to each photo. Here is the link to her Blog. Thank you for sitting here with me today as the grand list begins of so many firsts.

  2. I read your daughter’s page that you linked to. What an amazing young woman! I wish I’d been half that self-aware at that age. You did a great job, Mom. 💕

      1. I understand completely. I have two kids, and I don’t take credit for who they’ve become. It is nice to watch after all those years of uncertainty. 😀

    “We raise them to the best of our ability and then watch them as we go” No truer words have been written. I checked out her blog, she looks like a creative, adventurous woman!
