Glamour Shot

This is my oldest daughter, taken just the other day. A friend of hers had taken her out for a “spa day” & while she had a great time & appreciated it, the look was a little “thank you for this country music award” for everyday use. Still, I took a few photos and liked this one.

She’s gone back to school now. And while it was great for her and her fiance to visit, the fact is that she has her own life now and so when she comes home, it’s just not the same.

I have mixed feelings about this. Of course I want her to succeed as an adult & to make her own decisions. I have no complaints about anything she’s doing or planning — she’s not being stupid or short-sighted in any way. However, I also miss the girl that used to live in my house.

Well, I’m not the first dad to feel this & it’s likely I’ll feel the same about daughter #2 in a few years.

Just thought I’d share that with you.
