Many of you guys know that my family and I have been going through crazy transitions with our kids growing up, going to college, entering high school and it all happening at once! You’ve heard from me so many times, I thought it would be cool for you to hear from my best friend, my homie, my partner, my wife! She is the glue to the family. And I know her words will make you smile like they do for me everyday. Mrs. Tammy Franklin!

Everyone was so impressed with my answer and I honestly do believe it.

But inside I actually wondered myself exactly how I was doing.

You see with our oldest daughter (The girls are eight years apart) I began around her sophomore year in high school stealing away to my closet to have private moments to cry…. This literally happened over two years…. I thought maybe this go around my heart was more prepared, but I also wondered when was that moment going to happen… in fact I was somewhat scared of the moment…. You know that moment that it actually hits you that they are leaving.
