I miss them. Children grow up and go out on their own like I did…but I miss them. The capers we had are lodged in my memory and with all this extra time I have, I find myself sitting on their beds in their rooms and reminiscing.
Volleyball, track, softball and cross country took over my evenings and weekends for years. I loved to watch them play and I would drive to the ends of the earth to be there. Work would get in the way but I would still be there even if it was the end of the sporting event.
My daughters have become beautiful, independent and caring young women, everything I had hoped for…better than I was. Now I look forward to the next chapter of our lives and the new capers awaiting us!
