Tonight I held the video camera and recorded Kate and Josiah singing together All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera, Kate playing piano and Joe on guitar. I couldn’t stop crying. How I have loved listening to them singing together in the evenings. But tomorrow we leave to take Kate down to Hamilton to begin her music degree. I know I shouldn’t be crying – it’s such an exciting time for her, and she’s going to a Christian college and will be staying with her grandparents, but still….I can’t help thinking back over the last 18 years she’s been in our home. Beautiful years. So much happiness and laughter and joy. We are all going to miss her so much. But all change and growth requires some measure of letting go. I know that. But it still hurts.
