I cannot even begin to tell you how hard this month has been for me. For the past 2 1/2 years I have been by your side, guiding you and watching you grow. While we have spent a few nights away from each other, we were never apart for a prolonged period of time. You were an extension of me and our worlds were intertwined.
This month you embarked on your own adventures, without me. I knew it would happen, I just wasn't prepared to let you go so soon. You are off having fun on your great grandparent's farm. You can hardly contain your excitement as you tell me about the baby chicks, and the chickens and the countless other things you have seen. You even passed the phone to the baby chickens so that I could talk to them. That was very sweet.
You are doing things that every little boy needs to do. You are playing in dirt. You are playing with animals. You are exerting your independence.You are surrounded by family and people who love you.
I haven't been able to witness the countless changes that are happening in your life right now and I wonder if I will recognize the boy that returns from this wild adventure.
I know that this is the first of many adventures that you will embark on without me. I just hope that you know that no matter how far you go that I will always be here for you. I hope to be the constant in the amazing life you have ahead of you.
I might not always be in the same country as you, or even on the same side of the world, but we will always carry each other in our hearts. I love you.
Linking up with Shell for Pour your Heart Out
