I wonder if any mother could hold back her tears when parting with her daughters, or sons, for that matter.
NIA finally left for the Big Apple (NY, NY) at 8:50AM on flight MH090. Tears welled up as I said goodbye and wished her all the best for her life ahead.
It seems like only yesterday when she was a rambunctious kid; today, she's a dewy eyed young adult chasing her dreams.

NIA called at 10:38AM to say that she arrived at Newark late due to flight delay. She had to share the shuttle to Sheraton Meadowland, NJ, with two 'cold' and 'cliquish' fraulines. However, she's getting along swell with roommates from Brazil (the girls from Ipanema are sure hot, eh?). The city tour was 'awesome' and she'll be in Manhattan or Long Island by Thursday afternoon (Eastern time). I could hardly wait to revisit NYC and Boston.
