What Change The New Year Brings

ChampagnePIN ITIt’s hard to believe that a month has almost gone by in 2013. The last year has flown by and it is already looking like this one will do the same. I had intended at New Years to write down my resolutions for this year but somehow time slipped by and I never got it done. Maybe I just didn’t know where to start.

This is a big year for me, I feel change creeping upon me. It’s one of those times where everything I know will be completely different this time next year. It’s scary to think of even a little sad but exciting at the same time. My baby is a baby no more…. she will be in college and more than likely living away from home. She has been such a huge part of my life, I know every child is but I can’t imagine her not around all the time. She has always brought joy to my life and can always make me smile. Oh how I would like to turn the clock back a few years and keep her my little baby a little longer.

It’s not just my daughter either… My husband and I also need to start looking at what we want to do. We have stayed in Madison so that my daughter can finish school but where do we want to go from there. Stay here…. move to Birmingham…. sometimes I wish I was a child again and someone would make the hard decisions for me.

I have the desire to go somewhere different and change my stars but I know adventure doesn’t always pay the bills. Especially with a child in college to pay for lol. I guess I am just melancholy today. I guess it’s time for me to have a nice bubble bath and let it soothe away the worries.

    My kids are so little, I obviously can’t relate completely, but I do know how quickly the time slips away. I know im habing trouble with the idea that in about two years, my oldest will start kindergarten and I won’t have him following me to the bathroom all day everyday anymore 🙂

    I also understand from the perspective of a daughter attached at the hip with my mom. My senior year in HS was a great year for us. We were both a little sad, but we soaked it all in. College changed things, but not much. I think in many ways it strengthened our bond.

    I know every mother/daughter relationship is different, but I’m sure the next year will bring a lot of happiness along with the change. 🙂

      I’m sure it will bring happiness. I am excited for her and I know she will love it. I keep telling her how different it will be from High School and I think it will be her time to shine. I will just miss her face everyday when she isn’t there.
