Ok maybe the title of the post was a little inflammatory but it is partly true.
You see my daughter is at university and yes whilst I do miss her I am glad she is gone.
Its simple she is living her dream.
The destiny her father and I have wanted for her.
She is studying at the university she wanted to attend.
She is loving the subject of her degree
She has made some amazing friends and is having masses of fun.
I am so proud of all she has achieved.
I am super excited for all the future has in store for her.
She is living her life to the full and i am loving watching her grow and change into a beautiful woman.
She is independent and feisty and I love it.
I love her.
It’s not about missing her.
It’s part of parenting.
We raise them and hope and pray we have instilled in them wisdom and strength.
Then we let them go.
It’s the bird flying the nest.
The continuance of life.
It isn’t easy but its not about me, its not about us her parents.
It’s about my child who is now taking the next step on her life’s journey.
As a mother I wouldn’t want anything more than to see my child fulfil her dreams.
So yes I am missing her,
But I am so proud of her for living her dream.
