For the past 17 years, I’ve planned every next step of my kid’s life.
A few weeks ago, her future fell out of my hands.
She’s applying to college.
I can’t MAKE any college accept her.
I have no idea which college is right for her.
I do not know where she will be a year from now.
I’m excited about this next step.
I’m also cloaked in a nervous fog.
Will her roommate be kind?
Will the curriculum excite her mind?
Have I taught her everything she needs to know?
I’m beginning to realize there’s no way I can teach her everything.
The world is a much different place than it was when I went to college.
I have no idea what she will face, or who she will know, or what she will study.
But I do know who she is now…and I have faith we’ll be proud of who she will become.

Today used to be tomorrow…perhaps the future isn’t so scary after all.
