Well, I am currently sitting in Alyssa's partially empty house.
She is visiting some friends for the last time....
..I am watching one of her roommates standing on a chair while her family tries to figure out how to bustle her wedding dress....she's getting married next week.
So many changes this weekend.
Watching my daughter graduate was so very special.
Sitting in the hotel room with her and her friends last night, all snuggled up on the king sized bed watching the survivor finale was even more special!
Today I am just hanging out as she says her goodbyes.....
....remembering how I felt when I graduated college.
Knowing this is not such an "end" as much as it is a "beginning".
Knowing that she will probably only stay in touch with a handful of these friends...at best.
Wondering which ones that will be.
Wondering what graduate school has in store for her....where will she live....what will all that look like?
So many changes.
Remembering the beautiful baby I prayed so hard for.... for years.
That I held in my arms and thought she would be young forever.
I am so proud of her.
My heart is so full.
God is so good.
