My daughter turned 17 this month and it’s one more year closer to independence, one more day closer to college and one more year closer to moving into a dorm. Every day brings me closer to the day where my “baby” won’t be within hugging distance. It seems that with every year comes remarkable changes that leaves me in awe.
College brochures arrive in the mail, scholarships , ACT tests, all signs of the future to come. Right now I’m just going to bask in the glow of the candles of my daughters burning light and enjoy the short time I have left and enjoy each day.
