A milestone

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

I am incredibly blessed!

My oldest turned 18 years old this week. My husband and I have nothing but college plans on our minds lately. We are planning, saving, and panicking...of course. Our daughter is about to embark on a whole new life. Although she is going to a junior college for the first two years and will be home, it still is the beginning of her doing "things" on her own. Like driving herself to college and then to work without my help. emoticon

I know that she will be fine....but who is gonna help me cope! emoticon emoticon

She has an amazing year coming up....college planning, prom, graduation, a senior trip with the school to Europe....yes Europe....graduation, and then starting college with her own car. I already have some grey hair....I think that I will be white headed soon.

Pretty soon I will have to do this all over again. My youngest daughter is going to be 16 this year, so I will be up for round 2 in a couple of years.

I have been so busy that I have not be that good in tracking my food and pre-planning my meals. So I need to restructure and reorganize myself. If I don't get it together for myself, I will be of no good use for my family.

The struggle is real!

But I am keeping positive as I refused to become negative and depressed.
Keep my head up and try try try!

    It does take some adjustment, and we will always fret a bit about them, pray for them, and miss them.........but they must learn to stand on their own, become who God designed them to be! Hugs!

    Congrats and emoticon to your beautiful daughter. Loved her pictures.
    I have gone through this, and it is hard, but we raise them right and give them wings to fly. They will always come back, because we love them so.
    Stay positive, baby steps always emoticon
