So, I have come to the conclusion that the whole “middle school to high school” thing is a big deal. Honestly I don’t know if I’m ready for it. I know that I will get there by moving through it at my own pace. To me It feels like birth-to-running in a week. Don’t get me wrong … I love change. I embrace change. I create change on a daily basis. It’s part of my career for crying out loud! Alas this one is different. In a very ungraceful attempt to let go of the reigns a little bit more last night, I realized what’s happening. My girl is moving away from me. It is a very natural, healthy stage of life. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. I do however need to accept it and I know that that will happen over time. This morning as I look back at our conversation last night all I can do is giggle and of course cry a little. No worries. We will both be okay.
