|My girl is not a little girl anymore ..|
I guess not!!!
My eldest girl Is going to start work less than a month's time. It's her time to join the "real world" out there .. Joining the adult world.
I still remember her first day of kindy when I was worried leaving her in the care of total strangers ..
I still remember her first day of school when I was kicked with reality that my little girl is not so little anymore ..
I still remember her first day of secondary when for a FLEETING second I felt old ..
I still remember her first day of University, when she finally has to leave home and stay with friends and fend for herself and few extra seconds of feeling old ..
I still remember her "Ibu, I am 21 years old already, I can do it" when I worry incessantly about her driving around and doing stuff ..
And now she is legitimately an adult, will start to work and earn her keeps and be responsible for a lot more things .. And I confess, for a FULL MINUTE I felt old ..
These are the phases that we have to go thru and it comes whether or not you like it and I guess we will never be ready to let them go at any stage of their life, but let go we will and accompany them with nothing but the best wishes in the world that they find what they are looking for and that they will face the challenges that will be upon them and hoping that they will know, no matter what we will be there for them ..
So dearest kakak, congratulations on your appointment .. I am so proud of you, and always remember you always have me to turn to for anything and everything that you need or will ever need ..
I know you will go out there and do your best and here is to a wonderful new beginning .. Just know that there will be bumps along the way, challenges, and lots of other stuff, but I am confident that you will be able to weather it through !!
Just be you. And remember, you are a wonderful person with a wonderful big heart, and a beautiful one too .. dont let anyone tell you different !
Love you till my last breath ..
