No One Tells You

No one tells you how hard it is when your children grow up and leave the nest. My son moved away a few weeks ago. I cant take a long ride and visit him on a day trip anymore. While I am so thankful he is no longer in Afghanistan and he is no longer an active duty Marine, because I know he is safer now. I still miss him so much. I miss the time when our family is all together, laughing about old times. My oldest daughter lives a grown up life of working, paying bills and will soon say "I do" in a beautiful wedding ceremony. I am so proud of my children but my heart aches for the family togetherness. I still have two at home, but one of those will soon graduate from Cosmetology school and begin a full time job. (who knows how long Ill have her at home) and the baby has two years until she graduates high school.

While on our mini vacation recently I asked them, who will I take photos of when you two are gone? They laughed and said "the dogs or the chickens" somehow that isn't the same.

This part of life is so tough on us Mamas.  I just feel lost.
