Waving Goodbye.

Today I left my astonishing, compassionate and beautiful daughter in a town 130 miles away from home, in a strange town, with strange people, so that she can learn new things and get all clever and come home with a degree. And right this minute all I can think of is that her room is empty and the cat misses her and there is less “stuff” all over the house and I feel lonely. She is destined for great things.

About My Daughter: If you feel lonely, she will hold your hand. If you are frightened, she will stand behind you, holding you up, or in front of you, guarding you. If you are hungry, she’ll give you her food. You may absolutely always no-matter-what count on her.

But it’s her first night living away from home. I hope she’s okay. I hope she’s not missing me. I hope I feel better than this tomorrow.

    Sounds like a great daughter you have there! She will be fine, and when she comes back with that degree you will be so proud. It will get easier xxx

    I can understand how you’d miss her terribly. I hope she really likes school, because I know that will make things easier for you.warm wishes,Ann Bartow

    Thanks you women! Yes, I have a fine daughter! I am lucky. She seems to be liking things so far, she sounds very happy and confident. I am glad for her, but worried that she will crash out in the next few days and get very homesick, and then what will I do?! She’ll get over it right? It’s normal. I wish I could just relax…
