Moving day

Well, today is officially moving day for the sweet Princess. The new carpet was installed yesterday and today the landlord has a cleaning crew coming to do a thorough cleaning prior to her moving in this after noon. She is both excited and terrified, but I am sure she will do just fine. At least her new abode is only across the street from us, as I am sure for awhile there will be a few requests for assistance and the occasional plea to kill a dreaded spider or two.

Funny, you spend your whole life raising tiny beings to be strong, independant souls and it feels like the days are endless to get there. Then when it finally arrives, your heart is full of joy, sadness, regrets, and hopes for the future. Did I teach them the right things? Did I prepare them for how cruel the real world beyond these walls can really be? Did I give them enough love and understanding to pull from on the darkest days? Did I give them the tools needed to problem solve all of lifes challenges? Did I show them the way to trust in themselves to accomplish their goals and dreams? Did I fill their hearts with even a fraction of the joy that they have brought to me? Did I give them the map to follow back home anytime they need a friend?

Good luck dear Princess, I wish you joy, love, peace, and happiness in this new adventure. I love you with all my heart and know you will be just fine.
