The day has finally arrived. Today we move Drama Queen to college.
She's been a kick to have in our home, providing hours of entertainment her whole life. There's never a dull moment with this girl around. And though her exterior is tough, she is jello on the inside, a young woman with a heart for people and their problems, a person who is a faithful friend and dependable confidant.
We're going to miss her at home (You better come back, you hear?!), and although I'm sad today, I'm so very thankful to be forever connected to this girl, this completely unique and gifted woman. God is good, isn't He? Though my heart is heavy thinking of my little girl moving away, I know she will always be mine, always my daughter, always tied to me in a special way. Friends come and go, your MOTHER does not (Let's savor the moment, Drama Queen--no quips needed here).
Today I thank God for my precious daughter, for her fiery spirit and tender heart. I thank Him in advance for the wonderful things He has planned for her and the privilege I have to be privy to them. There were many days I wasn't sure I had it in me to mother this child, but true to who He is, God helped me. Now I stand back in awe of His work. She is something.
And to my dear, dear Drama Queen--you amaze me. You surprise me. Sometimes you frustrate the snot out of me, but you'll always have my heart. We are so proud of you and excited to see what God has in store for your future. Remember we are always in your corner, cheering you on, praying like crazy. You can always come home. We love you so much.
