I was reading USAToday this morning while sipping coffee (and Bailey’s!) at my computer. My mom mentioned to me that Thursday’s USAToday has book reviews. Now I notice the reviews and actually read one for a book called Sudden Country by Karen Fisher. This quote gave me chills…

I was talking with my 19 year old daughter last night….very late……and she is so full of excitement for the future and now. She will begin her second year of college and I am full of advice and plans FOR her.

I have plans FOR her.
of course,
is not following
MY plan
and it is hard for me.

It is very hard to let go.
