Some Day

Before I had children I laughed at parents who waxed poetic as their children started school.

When it’s my turn I thought, I will save my tears for the truly momentous occasions like graduation from high school, drivers licenses and admittance to college.

Some day I will be there and I won’t be them;

then some day happened.

As one baby after another marched out the front door to the start of their educational careers, I cried a little harder.

I reminded myself this wasn’t the end, just another beginning for them and for me.

Secretly though, I knew I had Ellery Jane bringing up the rear. She would be my baby for a little while longer.

Some day has come again.

Tomorrow my ending will mark her beginning.

Ellery Jane ready to start a new chapter, even if her Momma is still struggling to turn the page.
