A little at a time we have to cut those apron strings. It hurts. But it's part of life. As I left son #1 at football camp, the unraveling began....165.8 miles, 3 hrs 24 minutes of unraveling...yikes! Thank goodness when something is unraveling, it's still hanging on, maybe just by a thread, but it's still connected. God willing, the string will hang on for a few more years.
Son #2 is also away from the nest....552.9 miles, 11 hr 54 minutes to be exact...double yikes! He's having the time of his life. Vacationing with grandparents is every kids dream. All the fun and ice cream you want!
Thus my somber mood today.
Empty nest syndrome.
But when I see the excitement on their faces when they are experiencing something new, I can't hold them back. It's time to spread their wings and do a little test flight.
Man it's hard.
Praying for their safe return!
