I went to a funeral yesterday. Colleen was 49 when she passed away last week after battling cancer for a year. It is beyond tragic.
I hate funerals, but this one was especially tough….because she is a mother, and her two daughters are teenagers. Her younger daughter is my youngest daughter’s best friend.
It makes me realize how precious my children are…
and many days I wish they were little again…
Playing with blocks and not driving cars….
Not graduating from high school….
or wearing make-up…
Just sitting on the floor….
…and not walking away from me yet.
I joke around a fair bit about raising children, especially teenagers, but I’m the one with separation anxiety now, and I’m not ready to let them go. I hope they are patient with me….it could take awhile….and a lot of scrapbooking.
