I am joining a group of writers that gather virtually every Friday 
to write about 1 word for 5 minutes. 
We write unedited, our thoughts about one word.
This weeks word is

 In one week my oldest daughter will graduate from high school.
 I can't keep my mind from wandering to her as each day creeps closer to the end of school days which in turn marks the beginning of adult hood. Even with the one word prompt...............
 all I can think is I want to keep her close.
Close to me......

Close to family....

Hug her tight......

As mamas we all know the day will come. As we change dirty diapers and tie shoes and long for the day when they can dress themselves. We tell ourselves once our young one can make their own sandwich, pick out their clothes, put their school bag together
we will have it made. The move from dependency to independence and it is welcome. I can say....Yes to those transitions! 
Yet this transition I am fraught with concern and 
my eyes once in a while become weepy.
I remind myself that although I want to forever hold her close
there is One who holds her tighter than me.

"He tends his flock like a shepherd: 
He gathers the lambs in his arms 
and carries them close to his heart;"
Isaiah 40:11


For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis....there have been a few posts about this transition in my life. 
 Thank you for bearing with
 my slightly emotional and repetitious self. 
You rock! XO
