Riding a Roller Coaster

Life lately has been one giant roller coaster of emotions.


I know you all are tired of my whining, but having my one and only child move 
away to Auburn last Friday has been a lot to deal with. Also, she is going through
Rush right now, and that is a pretty huge stressor for all of us as well. I go back and
forth between telling myself, "You are okay. You can do this" to the next second 
blubbering and saying things like, "I want my baby, I want my baby."

Yep, this mama is having a hard time. Not that I am surprised at all, but it hurts just
the same.

I want to share a quick picture or two of Miss S in her dorm, then I will try to pull
myself together to work on a video. I videoed parts of our week, of the move, and
of the move in, so I will be back to share them as soon as I can get it all put together.

Miss S's new room...

I am so proud of my girl. She is smart, funny, beautiful, kind, and so
incredibly strong. I know God has a wonderful plan for her life, I'm just
a little sad that 18 years passed by so quickly. I just wasn't ready for our 
precious lives to change so drastically. I wanted to hold on to her here forever.

This article explains a good deal of what is in my heart right now.

Have an awesome day and I will see you again soon!


  1. Praying for all of y'all. I guess your mom has been a big help since she has had all of these feelings you are having with her one and only (not too many years ago ;-)

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, she is assuring me that each day will get a little less painful and has reminded me to focus on when I will see her again, and not on how much I miss seeing her everyday.

  2. Such good advice, wise lady right there! Glad I am related maybe it's in our genes. Tell your Mom Hello:):)
