my youngest was home from college in a whirlwind

between unpacking ... then packing once more

I created this card to place in her suitcase

5 days home . now off to a summer job

living with older sister . adventure

good memories to be made

in week twenty as well

tender hearts

one blue egg

city icons

memories ARE precious
to be sure.
grounded into letters on paper.
freed into flight by wings.

only five days?... and I was feeling down about how I only get 2 weeks with my oldest this summer.
sigh.

I am just completely floored by your handwriting.

i remember summer camps and packing as much as possible into a little suitcase for 3 weeks. at least she has an older sister to borrow things from now and then :)
and it's nice that they'll be together - maybe you'll go visit?

what a beautiful gift
of motherlove
to tuck inside your daughter's
new beginning
and the birds,
so much love with wings.
Fresh wings and a light heart
to you and your
sweet bird taking flight.
