Today, I went shopping with my Sarah, purchasing clothes for the upcoming school year. This was the very first time that we have shopped in the Teen department. Up until now, we have always been in Girls, but today we ventured forward. It was really fun, watching her try on clothes. She was so happy and excited. My heart was in my throat, though, because I know that I am watching her grow up faster than ever. As we shopped for her first foundation garment, I was thrilled for her, but sad for me. She will never be a child again. Growing pains are in my heart.
I have had/am having such a wonderful time with my children. I believe that being the mother of dependent children is the greatest time of my life, and that's saying something. I know that someday I was lose them. It is happening in little tears of independence. Today, was one of those.
I am thankful for my kind and lovely daughter.
