Letting Go/Holding On


All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.  Henry Ellis

S went back to school today after a nice long holiday break, the last chick to leave the nest from the holidays.  She dropped me off at work this morning and I cried all the way up the elevator, like I had just dropped her off at daycare for the first time!  It’s bed time, and I haven’t been able to make myself go in and turn the lights out in their room.

I’m 3 years into this being a college mom thing, and it doesn’t get any easier.  I’m fine when they are gone…….once I get my balance back.    I guess I am just trying to find the art of living!
