Spread Your Wings and Fly







It's been awhile since I was here last... I have been so busy getting my son ready to move to college and then the actual move. It's done. He's on his own and already spreading his wings. Classes start tomorrow and he will have to fly...

Thank you for all the kind words of support. It did help. Thursday (moving day) was hard. Friday was harder. Yesterday was better (I only cried once). Today I can think of other things. I have survived!

I have 13 more days with my son as well. He is moving into an apartment with some friends. I will have to come cry with you. You are a lovely family, and I know your son will be Blessed in all that he does.

Nothing but utmost respect to you, Karen, and all your friends in this time of transition. I'm only seven years behind you, and I'm finally believing it goes by fast.

Blessings to you and your son...

I think I know that campus! Heheh. I think all college dorms look the same.

It was so very hard for me to leave my son,only child standing in front of his dorm at Purdue three years ago. I was happy for him yet felt like he was slipping away from me at the same time. I tried so hard not to cry, but when he hugged me goodbye and said,"I'll be fine mom", I broke into tears. I cried the whole way home.
My son started his senior year last month,I still feel the ache knowing he will most likely be moving out in a year. He tries to ease the pain by slipping comments in about possibly not working in Indiana.You would think you get used to it, but it will always be bittersweet. It does get easier,but nothing remains the same. Take care and let him take flight. We have done what we are supposed to do.I am glad to see I am not the only one who has such feelings for her child.
