This month I took my daughter to New York City. She’s staying there for 2 months while she experiences the city and works on her music (she’s a singer/songwriter).
While there, I had the fantastic privilege of meeting my “first fan” – Jaime. We were all able to have dinner and meet in person. It was surreal for me.
As I left the airport and headed home, I wanted to cry. I’ve never left my daughter for more than a night by herself. But I remembered that it wasn’t goodbye, it was just until I see you again.
I feel the same with Jaime and the other friends who have come into my life since I started indie author. When I meet face to face and we connect, there’s always a time we have to say good-bye…but it’s not forever. Thanks to Jaime and her husband Aaron for meeting us in NYC. Giving my daughter a familiar face to count on means the world to me. And thanks to the friends I’ve made along the way. I know we will be life-long pals.
And to my daughter…as I sit and write this post I know you are so far away and that makes me sad. But you’re always with me in my heart and I couldn’t be more proud of how brave you are to try so many new things. So, good-bye for now everyone…but not forever.
