when I heard

Yesterday we brought Mo home from her first semester of college. We were in the car for thirteen hours and thirteen hours in the car is a test of endurance. We listened to the audio version of A Christmas Carol for a while and we listened to a lot of music, and toward the end when we were all getting punchy we sang along.

That's when I heard.

She no longer sings like a teenager.

Her voice is a woman's voice.

I heard.

And it's a good thing, because that woman's voice is going to be an amazing source of strength to you for decades to come. How awesome, and yet...how startling, I'm sure. Ah, you will have so much fun with her home!! I'm so happy for you.
