My 365...

Happy Tuesday, July 13! I have been dreading this day. Worried that it would be a difficult day for me because it is my son's 19th birthday. Strange reason for dread, but I have not seen nor spoken to my son since February and I miss him so much. :(

But not to worry! I did receive and email from him today! He is happy and doing well. That is all I needed to hear! He even said "I love you mom", so my day could not be more perfect!

I love YOU son! :)

Here is my favorite picture of him on his very first Christmas, 1991. Such an adorable baby.

I have learned so much as a mother this year. I have learned that there is no instruction manual that comes with being a mom. We learn as we go. I have had many triumphs and I have made a few mistakes, but above all I love my children with my whole heart and soul. There have been times I did not like them very much, but I never stopped loving them. I never will.

And the most difficult lesson of all, is learning to let go. For me that has been the hardest part of being a mom...letting go. Letting go and realizing that I have done the best I can with my children. Where they go from here is completely up to them.

Until next time.
