My first bird has flown.
Saying goodbye to him
was by far the most heart wrenching
event for all of us.
How do you say goodbye
to someone who is so much a part of you?
There simply are no words......
words of love an encouragement
through broken voices
and hot tears.
because of the distance that will be between us,
it was wonderful to see that the bond
we share is unbroken.
We are so proud of his determination
and we know that he has what it takes
to succeed in anything that he puts his mind to!
He's strong and smart
and we have so much faith in him.
But all the pride we have in the world for him
can't drown out the intense pain of separation
or the daunting task of
adjusting to life on the opposite coast of my
I will miss him more than I can express.
We all will.
