Missing My Baby Girl

This is the first year that my baby girl won’t be home for some of the big holidays and Thanksgiving is one of them. We talk all the time so it’s not like I’m not a part of her life, but it just isn’t the same. I need to see her face, to give her a huge hug to… I don’t know, just feel her presence in the same room with me. I’m truly grateful she is getting this opportunity to go to the college she chose and is having a fabulous time doing it, I’m just wishing it wasn’t over 2,000 miles away.

Luckily, as she reminded me this morning, it’s only 24 more days until she will be here for Christmas!

I wrote her a poem for her birthday a little over a month ago and thought I would share it with you all today. I hope you enjoy!

Unplanned you were delivered
Into my arms
A gift
Curiously independent
Adoringly faithful
Willfully precocious

Instinctively you were named
A cherished treasure
My lovely child

Unexpected you grew
Into a lady
Infuriatingly kind
Lovingly strong
Loudly courageous
Always my baby
