My third child and eldest daughter, 15, went on a "road trip" with our close friends' 18 year old daughter to Cornell to visit the 20 year old big sister of the 18 year old. (whew!) Anyway, they were gone for three days and during that time I felt the beginnings of heartache that in just two years she will be gone from home on a more permanent basis. Not realizing how swiftly the current of time flows, the youngest chimed in with "You will still have me for four years!"
I knew when the oldest son left that my four were all standing in line at the door, waiting their turn to exit out. I didn't let myself grasp the reality that we were just cresting the waterfall.
