On Friday evening, my husband and I will drive away from a lovely college campus in an empty van pointed 13 hours north. We’ll probably lament the fact that we won’t see our daughter for two whole months when she will come home for a midsemester break. In those tender twilight hours as we make our way back home, I’m guessing it will feel like forever until we see our girl again.

But with any luck at all, time will fly. As usual.
