I’m tired of saying goodbye to my independent children that are roaming around the country. This is a big trip for you, a big goodbye for me. You’re going to your talent competition that you’ve been working on for several months. I know I’ve been skeptical, wanting to protect you from the big bad world. Not because I don’t believe in you, but because I’ve been where you are. Dreams as big as the world. I’m glad you’re going for it. You’ve already “made it” in my book. You don’t have to “succeed” for me to love you unconditionally and wholeheartedly. But it is hard for me to step back and let you make decisions differently from me. You don’t need my advice as much as you need my support. I’ve tried to balance the two of those, and it’s deceptively hard! It really isn’t about control; rather it’s about protection. To me, you will always be my little girl with the infectious giggle and brilliant smile. Now it’s time for you to share it, in whatever way God leads. My prayer is first and foremost that God will be real to you through this experience. If you have heartbreak, go to Him first. If you have success, thank Him with your whole heart. I will always be here with open arms, proud of my little girl for who she is, not what she does. Always remember that. And please call more than your brother!

  2. Yikes! Where did your sleepless post go…?????

    I’ve been a horrible commenter lately but I’m always reading…always with you. Stress is keeping me from sleeping too lately. Tonight it’s melatonin. I’m going to get a good night’s sleep one way or the other. 😉
