I know that I will miss Hayden a lot and I know that by him leaving it will trigger my empty nest sadness. It's been hitting me a lot lately off and on and it's really hard. I am really hoping and praying that I will not take a nosedive into a sad sea of depression over this. I am praying a lot about it. Oops, I got sidetracked, this post is not about me and my empty nest, it's about registering Hayden for college!
It's hard to believe that in just a couple of weeks this will be his new home and he will be practicing on this very field. We will be taking him to college in a matter of days and after that the next time we see him will be right here on this field at the end of August at his first game. We sure hope that he will get to play!!!
Wow, this is really sinking in, when he leaves, Eric and I will have an empty nest. It's going to be a huge transition for us. I sure hope that I will go through it gracefully full of hope and joy and not be sad about it. I pray for Hayden on his new venture that the Lord will bless him and keep him and that Hayden will glorify God!
