  • AWWW... i remember So Clearly when my daughter moved 800 miles away to go to collage! it was hard for the first few months but, i was so proud & excited for her- it is a Bittersweet moment.. we put every piece of effort we have in us to Guide them & give them the tools to be Happy & Successful- & then they Take Off with those Wings! LOL:) be proud of yourself for helping your Little Lady Fly- you will have a Whole New Relationship & she will need you more than you think- my daughter has graduated now but, still lives 800 miles away- she continues to call me faithfully, everyday after work & we see each other often- lots of luck:)

  • Hugs to you mama. My son is a Junior, so this moment isn't too far off for me. I'm hoping it goes smoothly, with as few tears as possible.
