My daughter left for the Navy today, and this image is the last I had of her. I walked after her to capture just one more picture before she was out the door, and my movement made the picture blur. I look at it now and consider it a fitting image of the day, and the last moment with her...time and movement that went by entirely too fast.
Then she was gone.
I was fine for awhile, and excited for her. Then I made the mistake of considering baking some cookies, her favorite, and I thought, won't she be delighted when she gets home. That's when it hit ... the missing.
I'm verklempt...talk amongst yourselves....
