Yesterday I had to say goodbye to my daughter and send her back to the states for university. It is one of the hardest things for mothers, at least so far in my experience it has been the hardest thing. I see my youngest growing up faster than I would like too, she will turn 14 in less than two months and I don’t really know life without kids, so not sure how the after kids thing works.
On the 6th of September I will be traveling to Kenya for a retreat with my husbands work. We will get to go to Malindi on the coast, than spend some time in Nairobi and than off to see the Wildebeest Migration in the Maasai Mara Reserve. I am very excited but for those two weeks my youngest daughter has to stay here for school. Another goodbye, at least with a shorter time span.
Being in this foreign country has been tough, I have hit the culture shock zone and saying goodbye yesterday to my daughter is really making it harder. I have to keep reminding myself that tomorrow will be better…. sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t.
