Hiding Behind a Tree

As if my heart could not get any fuller, my first-born grandchild started his very first day of pre-school this morning.  Wasn’t it but yesterday when I had to leave my first child in daycare?  There was no choice…I had to go off to work……. I left her there on the playground, hid behind a tree watching her, aching with separation and worry.  I hid behind that tree and cried.

Today it was her turn in the wheel – in the ever turning wheel.  It really goes so fast, too fast.

Here are my grandsons, two brothers waiting with excitement on the first day.
