How is it, that a BOX and a LETTER can bring on so many mixed emotions at once, lol!! From getting the box to getting the letter today, my emotions ran crazy.......excitement, adrenlen rush, relieved, sad, happy, teary, and many more to say the least. This child that I carried for 9 months and raised for 18, is now an adult and making huge decisions......and he has left, in search of the many things that will begin to mold him for his future. He is my last to leave the nest, and I find myself recalling the many memories from the past several years, even those before him. There are no more children here......the rooms are quiet........and I feel the chapter pages closing. I am looking forward to this new life changing chapter, but still feeling sad, lost, and incomplete, no matter how confidently I try to look at it. Change is hard for everyone, and I am facing the challenge, it is what it is. I am proud to be his mother, supporting him in everyway I can, and I know that by the grace of God..........I will be ok!!!!
I got that same box 3 weeks ago. it is the hardest thing i had to open, Matthew 3 1/2 weeks in and all i can do is send Lots of love. Got my 1st phone call Be ready It was a hard one. My son who never cry's was crying. Be strong for them and you will be OK. Send a whole bunch of letters keep him in the loop. it helps.
just some help from a mom in Phoenix
