Today, I really feel old. Not nessarily because I can look in the mirror and see my hair is retreating from my head or because I have aches and pains in places I didn’t even know existed on my body. Today I feel old because I have been thinking about my little girl. Well she isn’t so little any more. Allie is 18 and moving away to Alaska. I can remember when she was 9 and we had the conversation about the “birds and the bees”. She said, “ewwwww” I will never grow up and get married. I am going to stay with you my whole life. Boy how life changes. I guess I am not as ready as I thought I would be to let my Children grow up and move away. I sure hope it gets easier.
