At times he whines endlessly and asks the silliest questions. He pushes my patience to the limit and often nags this heart. Yet he makes me smile the sweetest and hugs me the warmest! I’m missing the boy terribly and this is just the first night of three away from him.
The boy has gone camping! As he left the door I stiffled the urge to stop him and beg him not to go. Ok truth is I did! I asked the boy a thousand times whether he could sleep away from home and mommy’s arms and he said “of course mom!” Ouch, it’s not his first time to leave yet I know you get what this mom’s heart means!
So there he was waving bye bye at me all excited and glad to explore the huge world of scouting and here I am now tossing and turning in bed and missing the boy so much. For him to learn I know I must let go and watch him from afar so that someday he will have the strength to face the challenges of life on his own.
