Hello. It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
The card that I created using this week's sketch was for my daughter who is going away to college for the first time. I made this card for her and gave it to her with the poem below, which I found on the internet included inside along with a special note and a bracelet. I handed it to my daughter after my husband and I hugged her goodbye this last Friday. If you've ever had a child go away to college than you can relate, you're excited for them, your nervous about them being so far away and your emotional because you realize that this is just the beginning of them leaving the nest. Yes there were a few tears after dropping her off, but I know she's going to do great. Our daughter is a strong, independent beautiful young woman with a good head on her shoulders and I know she will spread her wings and FLY.
To My Daughter
as you go off to College
While you’re away at college,
I’ll think of you each day.
Before you leave
there are just a few more things,
I really need to say.
You’ve made me proud
as I’ve watched you grow,
it’s time for you to fly.
So take a step and don’t look back
because you may see me cry.
Remember all the important things
I taught you through the years.
Study hard and have some fun
and you’ll work through your fears.
Make the right decisions
as if I were standing by your side.
You’ve grown to be a beautiful woman,
you fill my heart with pride.
Keep this bracelet with you
and I’ll be close at heart.
Know my love is always there
even though we are apart.
