I will miss you tremendously. I love you so much and I am so proud of you. Good luck and best wishes at college, I know you will do well. Parting is such sweet sorrow.
The good news, we will see him in three weeks at his first football game!
I don't want you to think that I am a weirdo stalker mom who can't let go of my son. I am very happy that he is moving on to college and living his dream of playing college football. I also don't want you to think that it's all about Hayden. While this particular time is about Hayden, I believe that all of these strong emotions are coming from the fact that he's the baby and the last one to leave our home. My mind is flooded with memories of when all my sons were little. I love them all equally and am proud of each and every one of them (Click here to read when Cameron Mackenzie and Grayson moved out and what my thoughts were. Please note that for Mackenzie and Cameron's posts, I was brand new to blogging and was not as detailed with their stories as I was with Grayson's and Hayden's).
Our nest is empty now after having it full for the past 28 years and it's a little hard on this mama bird. Life will go on and we have many great things ahead of us. I just need to get through this transition, which I know I will with the help of the Lord.
"My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet." Proverbs 3:21-24
