As the New Year approaches, and our family has experienced a major change and a new beginning, with the marriage of our oldest daughter Sahara. It has taken some getting use to. Simple things like remembering to turn off the front porch light. I know she is not home and not at work, but I catch myself wanting to leave it on for her.
She called yesterday to ask me about making chicken fried steak, in which order the cube steak went into the flour egg wash and breading. I knew then that the torch had been passed. I did the same thing to my mom, when I first got married and even later. Hey how do you……?
She was my runner, if I needed something from the store, she helped with getting younger siblings to and from events, such as rehearsals and had taken control of library trips for about 2 years. That has all fallen back on me. Which I don’t mind it is just weird.
I miss her a lot but, I am adjusting slowly. Change and New beginnings are hard on everyone.
I know it is a good thing, but it just dawned on me, that soon I am going to be the only female at home, I will be the minority in my house. Us girls have out numbered the guys, now we are tied 2 for 2 and one day in the future I will be out numbered. What will it be like to live in house full of guys. I will have to ask the advise of my friend Carol who has 3 boys and a husband.
Change it is all a part of life. Not something we enjoy, but something we endure.
