A Little Sadness

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.

Your granddaughter is a little doll! Bless your heart, I know it's hard seeing her off to school. New chapters in life, whatever they may be, are always hard for me. I just prayed for you and for safety and protection and a love of learning for your granddaughter!

She is SO cute :)

I know how hard it is to see them go off for their first day of school. I actually cried and my children didn't LOL

Big hugs to you as you start this new Chapter :)
