Our daughter is fulfilling a Bucket List dream, and it’s got my momma heart twisted all sorts of ways. I’m proud, immensely proud, but of course I’m also nervous.
She’s hiking over 500 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, more than half of that just her and her dog.
Saying goodbye brought tears; pride mixed with fear and wonder as her dream became a reality.
As we watched her disappear into the bushes over the weekend, feelings similar to when she left home for college crept in.
She is certainly all grown-up… so capable, determined, and smart. But she’s still my baby girl, and this time she’s literally out in the wild blue yonder!
Not many women brave this trail solo, and we support her in every way. Still…those daily text messages confirming her progress and safety are highlights for me. I’m looking forward to picking her up in about five weeks when she’s all done.
How about you…When have you had a hard time letting go?
