I got the e mail we have been waiting for, yet once I saw it in my inbox, I nearly deleted it. If I ignored it , it “might” go away??? no, I had to open it, and it had my daughters Job Corps start date in it.
Monday September 14.
I guess that means we have about 16 days to have FUN before we need to get down to business. I have the ultimate faith in my daughter now, that she will do exactly what she promised “give it her best shot”. I can not ask for more.
But then there are those days that she will not be home at 3:30, or late night after work or late night after being out with friends. We can visit for hours at those special times!!!
But to see the rewards at the end of the ONE year commitment?? it would be SO worth it. She will be ready to take on the world that she has been so anxious to jump right into!!
As my mother taught me so well.
“In the end, when it is all said and done, everything will be JUST FINE”
God bless her soul. I want my OWN mom here right now, so she can reassure me in person. 😦
Now……I have a going away party to plan, a few shopping days together, and some other REALLY fun stuff to schedule in the next two weeks.
and my daughter is due home from a Friday night with her friends, and I want to be right here waiting for her.
Thanks for listening.
