Goodbyes are not easy for me.  Maybe I shouldn't look at this goodbye as goodbye.  For now it is only temporary.

 

My fourth child, my baby of four and a daughter leaves tomorrow morning to go back to college.  It has been a wonderful month with her at home.  For being number four she is a very independent young woman, and yet she counted on me to help her get ready to leave.

 

For now it is temporary but because I have had three before come and go during college and then college come to an end and they start their own lives, it is bittersweet.  I am so proud of her and admire her hard work and goals to do well in college and beyond.

 

I struggle because my children are the center of my life and it is hard letting go.  Watching them go out on their own.  Need me less.

 

And then I think of all four of my children.  They still need me.  Maybe not in the same way as when they were younger and more dependent.  But I am a phone call, text message, email, car ride away and we do connect. 

 

They know that I would stop my world for them and that makes goodbyes more bearable.  Knowing my children are in my heart and I in theirs is a good feeling.  I choose to enjoy that rather than say goodbye.
