These lazy days of Summer are passing fast.
I am sad.
My granddaughter has started school for the first time. I know it is a season for "letting go" but as Max Lucado put it in his book "Six Hours One Friday", "I gave her up. Not much. And not as much as I will have to in the future. But I gave her up as much as I could today."
I read that for the first time a few weeks ago. I awoke in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep due to the heaviness of my heart. I knew she would be starting school soon.
So the time has come. Summer as she has known it is over. Our life with her has changed forever. I know there are more good times to come.....but....I'm still just a little sad.
