Letting Go...

Letting go... saying goodbye... whatever you want to call it, it is hard. You tell yourself it's time, that he's ready, you're ready...but are you really? I know he is, but am I? My momma heart says no.

I can't write what I am feeling right now because as I sit here pondering it all, I feel that uncomfortable lump in my throat, and the words blur as my eyes fill up with tears for the thousandth time this weekend.

So, until I can adequately express my thoughts here, I will just leave you with some photos of moving day...
father and son, trying to get the wireless connection for their laptops
son and roommate, still working on the wireless connection
all settled in now


  1. Wonderful picture - exciting times for your son!
    How are you doing? Keep your chin up - keep praying - God will carry you through this time.

  2. (((HUGS))). It's a strange thing. As time goes, by missing him won't hurt as much all the time yet other times it will be worse. It's a hard thing to explain.

    Now you know why I just posted my teary-eyed pic on our dd's moving out day... there simply weren't any descriptive words that fit. (((HUGS)))....

  3. I know that a day like that is in my future, but I don't want to think about it yet! I know I'll be a mess...which is funny because raising productive young people who love God is the GOAL, right? Hope you are doing well with the adjustment.

  4. I know exactly how you feel.... but like Candice said above... it is weird we raise them to let them go....
