Today was a big day for me as a momma...
It was the first day Sloane has ever gone to school without either Jeffrey or I in the building.
I have to admit, my stomach hurt a little bit as I dropped her off.
At the door.
She didn't need me to walk her in.
My heart ached a little, even as I was so proud of her.
I wasn't worried about her, of course not.
I was sad, because she took another step away.
A necessary one, yes.
A friend of mine is about to send her daughter to college.
Last Sunday was likely the last time their family will ever worship consistently together.
You know what it's like once they go off to college.
Elyse is just 8 years older than Sloane.
And my heart aches a little more.
And I get up, wipe my eyes, and remind myself that these days are fleeting.
I'd better make them count.
