Bittersweet

Wasn’t it just yesterday that despite torrential rains, we loaded all of Erin’s things into the car
……..sophomore year wrapped and the summer beckoning?
Wasn’t it just yesterday, he began his first job and we worked to calm his jittery nerves?
Wasn’t it just yesterday he drove on his own for the very first time?
Wasn’t it just yesterday he began to walk…….
yesterday

Where did it go?

Tomorrow begins Junior year
new dorms, new experiences, new challenges…..
the car is loaded, supplies purchased, clothing ready….
Tomorrow
I am not ready–but no one asked me!

Will it go as fast as yesterday?
