Here it is the end of the school year for us. Our daughter Jane is graduating from High School this week, and I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I am SO incredibly excited for her and as she has so much going on this Summer. The creativity in this girl is beyond amazing. She writes stories, draws incredibly well and she loves to create music too.
On the other hand, I know I need to let her go. When Claire left years ago after she graduated, it was painful. I was not ready for those changes. I think all of us cried at one point or other. The cool thing is, Jane will be staying at home to go to local college to get two years behind her, then she can go forward from there. Perhaps I will be ready when she finally does move out, maybe I won't be as sad when she goes. Maybe we will be ready to kick her butt out.. she may get really tired of living here. ( She already is).
The HOPE is that the transition from teen to an adult - and me being able to handle that transition in a good positive way. I know we will get on each others nerves - but the beauty of that is being able to work together instead of getting angry.
I am looking forward to what she does with her life and how it all goes for her.
Peace in Music...
