In Flux

     You know how sometimes you just want to freeze time? Yeah? I'd like to freeze time for a while right now. But I can't. So I'm about to see my baby go off to New York City for a choir trip tomorrow. And soon I will see him graduate. And possibly go off to work away from home for the summer, along with at least one of his siblings. The house may turn in to a very quiet place. It Sucks/Rocks. It sucks because they are wonderful to have around the house. Around me. It rocks because life is going forward for them in good ways. In the kinds of ways I want for them. But dang, I raised people who I really appreciate and enjoy. I will miss them while they are off in their own worlds full of new experiences.

     Giving them roots is easy. Giving them wings is so doggone hard. And sort of highly overrated.


  1. I can not even imagine. I'm shuddering at the thought of sending my baby anywhere by herself. Ugh.

  2. My "big" boy is seven and my baby is four. I'm not ready for wings, I admit it!I applaud you for letting them fly!
