It happens. Your children grow up. Then they move out. Then your time is redefined.
It's a beautiful gift to have a relationship with a daughter. It's a gift when they grow up and want your friendship. I count it a joy to know those deeper parts of her heart, that she only shares with a select few. And now the shifting of time, geography, proximity. She is moving across the country. There will not be that text, "mom you want to go get coffee with me?" She knows my love for her is deep. I will miss her, but I also know that as a mother we send our children off into this world with the confidences in knowing that they are in His care always. Going to miss you Pie Sweety!
