Well, 18 years and one day ago, Johanna Joy made me a Mother for the first time.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. We laughed, we cried.
It's been good, and I'm looking forward to the next stage in our relationship. It's been nice having daughters, and it's been fun growing up with them. Both my daughters are sliding nicely into adulthood. They make me proud.
The adventure began in earnest last night, when we put her on the overnight College Express, from Saskatoon to Calgary. (looked like about a dozen people going, and most of them young, with parental send-off committees in attendance!) And so it begins.
Let's hope it's not the winter of our discontent!
