Making the room warm and homey
Color definitely helps
She seemed excited about the next chapter in her life. So leaving her was easier than I expected. Greg and I arrived home around midnight last night.
I woke up at 7:30. I came downstairs and Meg's door was closed.
I opened it and noticed how empty it seemed. A lot of her stuff is still here, but it felt empty.
I am having moments throughout the day of tearing up. As I think about it, it's more than just her not being here, because she was out and about much of the time while she was at home. I think more than anything I am feeling some remorse at not doing things with her while I had the time to. Of letting precious moments fly by and not being more purposeful. I am not going to stay there, I know that is not productive.
And I know though our relationship will change, it does not have to be less, it can be more.
On a different level.
I'm trying not to text her every hour. Actually I emailed her this morning and left it at that.
For those of you who have children still at home, it goes by so very fast. Make the most of every moment.
Blessings and hugs!
