Bitter Sweet


The tears have been flowing here since 4:30am this morning. My baby boy has left the nest! Even though you want your children to grow up and have a life of their own, it's hard to let them go. This is a hurt my heart has never felt before!! My girls moved out, but they didn't go far. My baby boy will be 725 miles away from home. I hope and pray he gets there safely.

bittersweet it is! i cried two years before my son graduated! by the time his graduation was, i was better & accepted his growth & his plans for life. now he is a wonderful husband & dad, i could not be prouder! when he got married, i said to him, did i just not put u on the bus for kindergarden? we always love them & they hold a very special place in our heart! God is in control & we will place our trust in Him. my thoughts & prayers are with you. hugs & blessings, vikki ♥

When I lived in Florida for those years away from family, it was rough, especially as my Grandson and Father got older, you really miss out. But you have the memories.

Hey girl--I know how you feel! When we left our son in Atlanta for college I cried the whole way home and for nearly two weeks after! He'll be fine but you'll always worry cause that's what us mamas do!

Love Ya!
