She Misses Me...She Really Misses Me!!

Once again my nest is missing a chick

GG is currently at Harding University participating in the American Legion Auxiliary Girls State program.  This weekend I helped her pack and drove her to meet the family friend who would drive both our daughters down to the campus.  I will be picking them up on Friday and bringing them home.

Yesterday I received three phone calls:

- the first to let me know that  she had arrived safely (thank goodness!)
- the second to let me know that she had lucked out, gotten one of the best dorm rooms, it was basically an apartment, and all was just FABULOUS (umm...darn, great!)
- and the third to let me know she had been elected, was in the process of running for an office, their dorm toilet was clogged and due to the holiday it will probably be Tuesday before it can be fixed, and although they were friendly with the neighboring dorm room and could use their toilet it was really an inconvenience and was making her reevaluate the whole dorm living idea (awww, really?!?! as I fist pump the air and secretly smile to myself)  Don't judge!!

Today I received this text:

and then I received a phone call to tell me what has happened since the last time I spoke with her, what is suppose to happen until I speak with her again, and that she won't be needing that application in her room for Harding University because, "it's a nice campus and everything but I don't think it's really my thing and Momma it's really a ways from home...and I miss you"

That's right!  My baby chick is maturing into a homing pigeon.  I'm not saying I never want her to leave home, because I do.  However, it does my mommy heart good to know that she wants to come home.
