i sit here
watching her

she writes while
listening to her cd
over and over

humming unknown words
saying random sentences
about music
only she is hearing

forcing the tears back
i wonder
what all will change
this summer

something inside
tells me
it will be different
this time

i can almost see
the changes
before they even happen

maybe because
she is such a mix
of child and

my heart breaks
knowing that when
she walks out that door

90 nights will pass

and my little girl
will be gone


oh jesus
take her into your arms
hold her tightly
guide her
protect her
keep her as your own

help me be calm
knowing you are there
where i want to be
but you will never leave her

protect the bond we share
bring her home safe to me

I hope it helps your sadness, knowing I care, and understand how hard it is to have to let her go.

I will be praying for you.

I feel I've really neglected some very faithful friends since I started working full time again, so I want to say Hi, and hope you're feeling better now.

My heart aches for you. I remember too well the pain of letting you go and watching you grow up. It sure seems to be happening earlier these days. But maybe that's because I have already traveled the journey.

Hang in there. It's a long road but there is a rainbow at the end of the tunnel. Take a look in the mirror. She knows how much you love and trust her. Deep down inside she is a wonderful, touchy feely beautiful girl. No matter where she goes in her teen years, she'll be back.

Remember the magnet on out refrig,
Let go, Let God. Peggy gave me that when I was struggling with the emotions of you growing up. I think you were 12.

God Bless you, my darling. Mom
