Last moments

A last moment with my son...

He's gone once again. He's flown back to the new life that he's been making for himself. He is doing well and most of all, he's happy. What more could a mother ask for? He is following his dreams...making his own path in life...to fly on his own...after all, this is what I taught him to do. My home feels empty once again and my mother heart is breaking. I miss him already. Every moment, that I shared with him is now etched in my heart and my mind keeps going back to those moments of just seeing his face...seeing him smile...feeling his presence here in my home. These precious moments, whether it be with him or another one of my loved ones, are what gives my life meaning and purpose...these moments are like the glue that connects each one of them together, inside my heart. They are my heart.

He's gone and it will take me a little time to recover from his leaving, just as it is when any of my children leave. He may be gone, but he is never gone from heart.

Very soon I will post more pictures of our crazy, busy, and fun week.

I'm sorry he won't be there for Christmas, but at least you got to see him, which is something, right?

I know it must be hard to accept that he's making his own life, one that doesn't have you at the centre, but it's part of life... all kids do it.

(I know you know all this stuff; I'm just saying it in the hopes it makes you feel better.)

Aw! I can only imagine how you will miss him. Thank you for sharing the picture. What a handsome young man!

oh honey, you have raised him right and he is thriving. I know it is hard but you know for the right reasons why.

Glad you were able to spend time with him. Cherish those memories until he comes around again. Before you know it time will have passed and he will be there again.

Why does it have to be so hard to let go of our children? He is a very handsome young man and you look way to young to be his mother.
Hope the rest of your holdays are happy ones.

I'm so glad you were able to have such a special time with your boy. He's quite a handsome young man and you must be very proud.

What a great looking kid...still think he looks so much like my own nephew...strange LOL...i like them when they get to this age, past the sullen monosyllabic midteen years...back to communicating, interesting adults that like to engage. Really refreshing and fun to be around. And he sounds like he has grown into a wonderful caring person, wonder who he gets that from? ;)

Every time I see your picture I can NOT believe you have grandchildren. You look SO young!

Don't worry, he will come back : ) They always do, right?

Aww...this made me cry. I hate it when they leave, but I guess that's just life.
