New Loyalty

Yep, born Texan, LSU alum...and here I am waving the flag for OSU - that's Oklahoma State University. Well, as my UT-alum sweetie says, "at least it's orange". Better than RED!

Since my firstborn is headed for OSU for fall, I'm now buying orange clothes and getting into the spirit of things.

Just thought I'd share...

Fly, my little birdie – it’s your time.

I know you aren’t sure if you will fall or soar

You’re standing at the edge, looking at the vast distance below you

And you want to go, but it’s scary – maybe the nest is refuge now, not a prison

I know there may be some stumblings, but you will find the wind again

And if you are ever in a free-fall, I will scoop you on my back and carry you

Until you can fly again on your own

Eventually you will find your valley

And be the queen of all you survey from above

I will see you fly towards the horizon until maybe you are out of sight

And I will know you are going out to find your own place in the world

But you will return sometimes, just to see where your journey began.

I love you – forever – no horizons.

::: breaking champagne bottle over bow :::

Woo hoo! And other significant literary inspirations...

I do have some higher expectations of the postings here and will try to live up to my own standards...dang! I hate when that happens...
