I've done my job then. She knows all the things I wanted to impart.
Except, this one thing, that I know she will roll her eyes at and say "Mama," in that exasperated tone that only almost 18 year old girls can do, but this one thing is going to be true for the rest of her life. She might as well accept it.
She will always, always, always be my child, and I will never stop loving her or worrying about her or trying to help her in anyway I can.
That's what moms do.....we love our children.
To the Moon and Back, Leah.
