Crisp fall days means weaning time
A part of me felt that way when we started to drive away from the dormitory parking lot as our college student waved from the steps. I was ready for her to make her own way and "do her thing!" But just like those cows who eventually returned to the pen, wondering where their calves were that evening, I miss my girl and often wish she were back home. But I know that it is her turn to shine and she must grow--independently from her parents.
