Mothers and Daughters
She is not so little anymore...
Abby and I are very close. She is very open with me and willing to share and talk about almost everything. And what she doesn't share, she knows that I know anyway! I tell her, someday we will sit down and chat about all these things, when they won't feel like such a big deal to her.
It stresses me out that she may be leaving our house soon. She is accepted to three different Universities, one being three hours away from home. It is her choice where she decides to go and I think she feels ready to be on her own, but knows that the cost of moving away is something she really needs to consider. I know that she would be fine.
It is hard as a mother to let your children go... and yet, we always remain mothers to our children. Hey, I still call my mom up for advice or ask her to come see me when I really need her support... and she always drops everything and comes to me.
There is a song on the radio right now that I call "our song". Abby rolls her eyes at me, with a smile on her face.
