Five Minute Friday: Truth

Truth is they tell you about sleepless nights, breast feeding, weaning and potty training like my sweet friend said. Truth is they don't tell you what it's like when your just out of school man child starts his first day at work or moves from home like my friend's son will do.
Truth is, that all happened so fast this day he wrote his last final exams and two days later he started his first day at work. Truth is we are so proud of him and amazed by this wonderful opportunity he has been given. Truth is, I was strong as we drove there, chatting about important things and so excited for him! Truth is my heart felt ripped out as I drove home after dropping him off, praying and fighting the tears that just would not stop. Truth is, all I could see was his newborn face the first time I held him just more than 18 years ago. 
Truth is, time flies....they tell you that but you don't believe it until you are looking back and wondering where on earth the years went to? 
Truth is, a mama always wonders if she did enough, did enough to prepare him for that big world out there....
Truth is, she has to let go and trust the one who set the stars in place and knows just how many hairs are on his head....

  1. My oldest just turned 18 a few days ago and you'd best believe that I spend hours in tears. Crying in joy, fear, and from just plain being overwhelmed with the enormity of having an 18 year old no-longer-child. We can do this!

    1. Yes Jamie, it does feel so enormous, doesn't it! Thanks for your encouragement :)
