My “baby” is flying 11,230 km to reach China on Monday. In mom language its a million miles. I know I’m sending my son, to go do some going up and this is the last time he will be a boy. In the past when he left for 2 weeks or a weekend I saw the changes in him. How much difference will a year make? Well he will be a young man, able to look after himself and make decisions that I will only be able to make suggestions on.
I knew this time was coming and did give the freedom to make choices this past year that I would have made when he was 17. The difference is that I was close to fix stuff if something went terribly wrong. Now I’ll be 11 230km away.
This letting go business is no fun. I want him to know – I love you, I want you to have a great life, I will miss you every day, I can’t imagine a year without you, be save but take every opportunity, make mistakes and learn from them and You are an amazing son…
