when she was five she said, "will you be okay?"
it was her first day of school and we had been playmates for as long as she could remember. so, off to school she went. making friends, learning new things, having more life.
now she is preparing for marriage.
she will move far, far away. and, i will be okay. she will make new friends, learn new things, and develop a much greater life. she will continue to serve and love. she will grow in beauty and grace.
i will miss her. but, she was a gift that i always knew was temporary. her seven older siblings have taught me to let go and smile.
i will be okay.
i will flourish.
i am living my dream.
my life is good.
i am thankful.
