Seniors: Sending Our Granddaugther On Her Way

Jun 13th, 2011 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

She went about her packing methodically and comfortably. So many trips had provided her with the skill to know how to get as much as possible and more into her bag. Her nanny had taught her how to be an efficient packer. She was packing all the clothes, the stuff, the souvenirs of a two week stay. But she was packing more than that too. She was packing our love, a bag full of memories that we would talk about for years to come. She was squeezing in all the moments, conversations, joys, pleasures we had shared in those two weeks.

But now, it was time to go home to resume her routine life with parents and friends. We will see her again, hopefully soon and often, but never again, at this midpoint in her adolescent adventure of growing up, with so much spontaneity and delicious pleasure. The treasures of this time will be stored in our hearts forever.
