I am sitting here listening to the thunder roll and trying so come to grips with this chapter of life coming to an end. Our phone has rang off the hook the last couple of days and his Aunt that lives near us came over to get her hug. My side of the family is at least 5 1/2 hour drive away thus the phone calls. His big brother called from Wisconsin and they were on the phone for about an hour (of course he had to talk to his nieces too) He wanted chinese food for his last day at home, so that is what we did. My life has been so full of taking care of kids that I am not sure what to do next. A whole new way to buy groceries, lower water bill and no one to argue politics and world issues with.Daddy will be more lost as he is retired and I still work part time doing back up work for a property/storage manager. I wouldn't turn back the clock though, I am really looking forward to learning how to cope with it just being the two of us. Going to get off here and watch one more documentary with the kid, eat some donuts and drink my last cup of coffee with him for awhile. I know what a blessing I was given and tonight when I lay down to sleep my prayers will be one of release. It is time for me to let go, to trust more and have faith in the plans God made for him. May you always be strong, be kind and be happy my sweet boy. Remember MTLI (my code for I love you more than life itself). And now the next chapter begins!
