It DOES Get Easier!

Posted on: August 21, 2008

My college daughter has also left to go back to school, however, she will be starting her Senior year at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.  I can remember vividly the anticipation as she was getting ready to start her journey as a Freshman at U of L.  I, too, remember giving her that great big hug in her dorm, squeezing her tight one last time but then letting her go to become the person she is meant to be.  I cried all of the way to the airport, still crying while turning in my rental car, still crying while boarding the plane and not quite understanding why nobody was asking me what was wrong! (I realize now that it’s a college town and it’s not unusual to see Moms teary-eyed during that 3rd week in August!).  After a consoling phone call with my husband he reminded me that this is how we had raised Abby to be, independent, strong and excited to see what the world had in store for her.  So, those tears have since long gone away and I’ve seen how Abby has grown over the last 3 years into a wonderful young woman.  So Julie, the good-byes do get easier because they arent’t really good byes at all, they are simply “see you soons” and the “can’t wait to see you hellos” are still the most look-forward to moments and the times that I hold close in my heart.
