I know it is a right of passage in todays world and it is pretty much expected if you want your children to be a success in the future, but that doesn’t mean that it makes it any easier. My heart is breaking just a little bit, twisting, with the pain of loneliness, not knowing how I will survive without my little boy at home, he has kept me company when I was alone, when I was lonely, he was there. When I was sick, he worried about me, when he needed me, I was there for him. I don’t even know if he knows how integral he was to my life, how deeply I will really miss him. He was my buddy, we would bust each others chops, but deep down there was a bond that goes very deep, when I hugged him Goodbye today, I hugged him with everything I was worth, and I don’t think He ever hugged me quite as hard either,which really touched me, and was just what I needed.
I wish him the best for the future, only the most wonderful college career ahead for him, and the best life, it is just so bittersweet to face this day of having my baby bird leave the nest!
