11/12/13 Driving away

Sam heads off on her first solo drive, with two job interviews this week.

When it happens, you won't be ready for it.

You'll think you are; you'll have told yourself since the day your youngest was born that, someday, she will be ready to fly away.

And you will spend her whole childhood telling her how absolutely awesome and amazing she will be, and that when she's ready, her wings will carry her anywhere in the world she wants to go, and you will be there, always, wildly cheering and waving goodbye with excitement and joy for her.

And, certainly, you will.  But you won't be ready for it.
