I’m exhausted. No really…exhausted. The kind of feel-it-in-your-bones exhaustion that comes from trying to keep up with 18 year old teenage girls. “Why in the world would you try to do that” you ask? Because being a mom of a soon-to-be college student makes one realized that time with her will be dramatically limited in just a few short months, and taking whatever time I can get with her now is of the highest priority.
So with that in mind I spent the last five days with my daughter and two of her girlfriends exploring Boston and reflecting on the value of the mother-daughter relationship. Next week I will blog about our adventures and will share some images from the places we visited, some laughs that inevitably came from spending time with my silly daughter and her friends, and some tears that were shed as we ended the week mourning the loss of a beloved mother/wife/daughter/sister/friend in our community.
But for now I will wish you a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend full of love and family.
