I don’t think you ever really believe this day will come…
my Beautiful Girl has left home – gone to the Territory for her first big adventure
Even though we knew the time would come when she would fly the nest, and even as the day drew closer, it still didn’t seem real somehow.
As we were putting her on the plane – her so calm and relaxed, me willing myself to let her go – it still didn’t seem real.
Hearing the emotion in her voice as she told me she’d cried herself to sleep the first night… it was all I could do from booking a plane ticket out to Alice Springs straight away.
I keep telling myself that I am not the first mother to have watched their child leave home, nor will I be the last.
