My sweet girl is starting Kindergarten tomorrow! It’s really bizarre because I really didn’t think that I would be very emotional about it, and yet, every time I think about it, my eyes tear up!
I was putting her to bed tonight and prayed for her day tomorrow. As I was praying, I just started crying. I think it is mostly because I just will miss her so much! And there is this part of me that is sad because she will be having these experiences throughout her day, that I won’t be a part of. Part of the process of letting go, I suppose. Trusting God that He loves her more than I do, that He will protect her, and guide her.
It doesn’t help matters any that we received an invitation to a “Kleenex and Coffee” after I drop her off tomorrow. And here is what the invite said:
“We hold their hands, then let them go
That’s when our tears begin to flow.”
She is growing up. Unfortunately I can’t stop it from happening. And I am trying oh so hard to look forward to the adventure ahead and seeing what God has in store for my sweet little girl! Maybe I will cry so much tonight, that there won’t be any tears left for tomorrow.
