It came to my e-mail inbox–the high school notification of freshman orientation. You would think I would be used to this, having already sent three children to the high school. But I got a lump in my throat and quickly closed the e-mail. I just don’t feel ready.
But whether I’m ready or not, she must go. And just like the others, she is ready to go. I guess I am just wanting to savor the childhood of my children, and high school feels so.grown.up!
Let this be a lesson to me to savor each day of her high school years–I know there will be happy ones and hard ones. There will be the requisite ups and downs that mark the passage to independence. But as she gazes on her Savior, I know she’ll do just fine.
Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:5
