So The Boy headed to college. A week ago.
I have been terribly uninspired to write about it~ which is unusual. It IS a milestone event, if ever there was one.
But there are many. This is One.
I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, to be honest. It comes and goes in waves...
Of course, there is the stereotypical "Leaving the Nest" thing to deal with. Though, everyone I know has expected me to mentally and emotionally collapse at the very nano-second his size 13.5 foot touched the concrete steps of his campus dorm.
And don't get me wrong ~ I AM sad about it.
Aspects of it, anyway...
Though I confess, if I had not prior understood the meaning of the term "bittersweet", but really felt it melt into the core of me...
This was most certainly it.
There is a depth here I hadn't expected.
It has been an honor and a privilege to be on this journey with this amazing human being... this Boy who stole my heart and made me a Mother. This boy who is becoming his own Man.
There are emerging wings for both of us at this beautiful juncture. It will be an adventure to witness their unfolding. *And they feel like they may be rather golden. ;)
