It seems like only yesterday that I was the mother of two little girls, who are now all grown up and moving on in the world without me. Some days this is really hard, but other times it is awesome to know that they are strong enough to make it own their own – and seek this for themselves. Watching Jesse graduate from high school this past June and then pack her car and head to beach almost does not seem real.
For some reason letting Hannah go was easier maybe because Jesse was still home and she might just come home to see Jesse. Soon this will not be a reality. Derwin and I know that we are entering and exciting yet emotionally hard time in our life. We are excited to be empty nesters but will covet the times we have the girls with us together from this point forward. Derwin and I know the future holds good times, good friends, and lots of fun! We are proud of the two girls we have raised but now it is time for them to spread their wings and fly! God says in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” I know that God holds their future because they believe he does!
