gratitude-a-thon day 884: head spin

Graduation parties everywhere–five this week. So many celebrations of the big day. But not going to lie, I’M EXHAUSTED!

It takes a lot of not only physical, but psychic energy to process this stuff. One day you have a tiny and totally reliant baby, and the next you have a full grown woman ready to walk out the door. It’s enough to make your head spin like Linda Blair in The Exorcist.

On the one hand, it’s logical. On the other hand it’s completely incomprehensible. Part of me understands the literal situation that my daughter is going to college, but the other part of me feels like I’m in math class, where after seventh grade, you might as well have been speaking to me in Chinese.

I am grateful. For all of it. For every second and every complicated and exhausting emotion. This is life.
