I did it today. My Baby Boy left the nest. It is the most bittersweet day ever. For my Followers, I introduced my Son in the blog, my-son-the-graduate.html. Mamas, depending on the nature of the child that God gave you, the day you drop your baby off to college will be one of the hardest days of your life or it will be very easy.
I raised two children. When I dropped off my daughter, my first born, to college in 2008, I cried my eyes out from Pittsburgh to Grove City. Today, I was fine. It was easy. But I understand both feelings on the spectrum of emotions. And both emotions are ok.
Last night, on the eve before my Son's departure, I had my own private time to reflect on the thought of my Son leaving the nest.
It all began with watching the CMA Music Festival on TV. Garth Brooks sang the song: "The River." I loved the words, and I felt they were so fit for my Son. I could not sleep. I got out of bed to look up the lyrics, and I am sharing those words with you all this eve, but a woman is singing the words in the video. That is us, Mamas. The other song that I send to my Son is "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts.
Garth Brooks' and Rascal Flatts' words capture my emotions perfectly, and I cannot say it any better than they do in these videos. Please watch and apply them to your own life---beautiful words, beautiful messages.
Love You, Ozzy Bear......you got this, Son!
Here's to Good Health and Much Happiness :),
