I’ve been thinking of my daughter a lot. She is busy being a junior in college, holding office in a sorority and working on group projects for all of her management classes. She lived away all summer so she could keep her job. I miss her. She’s pretty awesome to hang out with.
Even though she and I are very much alike in a lot of ways, we can also be at each end of a very broad spectrum. She is me when I was a young adult. I am me grown up. I understand her because I was her. She will understand me when she is me. Right now, we meet in the middle. We enjoy the middle. I get to visit her tomorrow and spend some time smack dab in the middle. That makes me very happy.
I wrote this for my daughter Kelsey:
It was my perspective at a moment yesterday. That moment came after I received a phone call from my daughter that started out with “Mom, can I just tell you how excited I am that I get to see you soon?”. So tomorrow, if you need us…you can find us in the middle.
