Today is the day that I have thought about for so long – with joy and fear and trepidation. Today my daughter is flying solo to her Mimi (grandmother) in Atlanta. “Not a big deal,” some might think but for my daughter and for me this is one of those many steps in life that lead out into the world children will one day conquer on their own.
Nervousness has taken over the household the past two days, between the removal of her cast, Halloween a few days away and a school visit to a corn maze, the steady buzz of energy is difficult not to feel. But it is a good nervousness, the type that makes you grow when you realize you have come through the other side of it.
I will let you know how the other side of it feels, at least the other side of this one step.
