This handsome young man. My first born. He's moving to Colorado first thing in the morning.
His mommy is having a little trouble processing that.
How can he go so far away?
Did we teach him everything he needs to know?
Actually, he learned so many things on his own. He is very intelligent and aware in a way that surpasses all who had anything to do with teaching him.
Does he know how much we love him? All of us? His dad, Marianne, me, Patrick, Mike, Emily...friends, family...does he know? I hope so. I hope that love stays in his heart and carries him wherever he wants to go.
My heart is heavy because I will miss him. I will miss knowing that he's right here. I will miss knowing that he might just drop in.
I will adjust, though.
I know he's doing the right thing. He's going to work for a company that was practically created just so he could be employed there. :)
I know he will be happy.
I will miss him desperately but I know that I have to let go.
It sure isn't easy.
