all my troubles seemed so far away
Do you ever get a melody in your head and one word can trigger it? "Yesterday" by the Beatles is one for me. We successfully, and another $150.00 in room "stuff" later, got Ryan moved into his dorm room. Easy! And now comes the hard part - him making it work, getting to classes, applying himself, being okay. I know he can do it.
and then there is Allyson
over the next couple of days we will sort through all her "stuff" again, cut it down in half, pack the rest, and transport her 14 hours away. (Japan illustrated to us that less is more, and she can survive without the kitchen sink) Moving her is hard. But the rest comes a little easier for her. Not that it doesn't require great effort and determination on her part - but school has always been 'her thing'.
Yesterday just reinforced what we already knew - time doesn't wait for anyone, or anything.
It just keeps moving forward and sometimes you just have to place your faith in tomorrow.
Allyson drew the pictures of herself winning a golf tournament and skating in 1996 - she was three years old (I helped with the coloring and wrote the titles as she explained them to me). Two years later she would take a bad fall at a skating party and swear off skating forever. Around the same time she started playing with Pokemon cards and games and years later, discovered her love of Japan.
Oh yesterday came suddenly.
