My daughter finished 4th grade this past Spring. On one of her last days in school, she came home with a new word she learned from her teacher…
That’s the word. But, she doesn’t use the word right…not really…
She tells me that SHE is BITTERSWEET!!
Her last postcard from camp told me that she had a couple of days left and she was bittersweet. Not…she FELT bittersweet. But…SHE is bittersweet.
And, as a mom of a ten year old daughter…she is so right.
Sometimes bitter. Sometimes sweet.
It’s only a couple of years now until the sweet disappears entirely and she becomes straight bitter!
And that…is BITTERSWEET!
