Tomorrow she leaves. Inwardly, I feel out of breath and slightly numb. The blessed grief of transformation in transition comes in small bursts.
My baby is going to college.


  1. Hugs to you mama. The great thing is now you will get to experience your daughter as a woman rising alongside you. It will be a joy I'm sure to watch the path she takes to finding her complete independent self. Think of the long talks you will have with no stipulations, enjoying the subtle things with the intimacy only a mother could have with her child. Bittersweet. Job well done.

  2. Awwww. It makes me wanna come by with a tissue & some wine. Bright blessings to you & the college girl!

  3. Your words about your daughter are so beautiful!
    Hugs to you mama, I can imagine this time to be bittersweet!

  4. thank you for stopping by my blog. love hearing your story...hang in there college mommie!!

  5. AHH! Sister Mom, Its such an odd moment they are still the child the next a woman standing on her own...all within a 5 minute conversation....its not easy but it is a JOY! Enjoy the changes, look how well shes doing! You raised a strong beautiful young woman..ready to take on the world..who knows she can come to you with out judgement when she stumbles. Blessings & Hugs
