I cried a lot when it was time to say goodbye, but I survived!! We moved Bryan into his residence at college, helped him unpack and set everything up, and stocked his room with groceries. It really helped me to see him comfortable in his new home and surrounded by everything he needs, but I still balled like a baby when we left. By the time we got home, I just felt completely drained. It will take some time to get used to him not being around every day, but I am just so thankful for all of the technology which will allow us to stay in touch (when he wants to that is LOL).
I was so tired last night and I didn’t really feel like doing my blog for today at all, but then I thought of a photo that I took recently that just seemed appropriate in my situation this week. Mike and I were driving down the highway one day when all of a sudden he hit the brakes and turned the car around. In a field, right by the side of the road, a cow had just given birth, and I mean just! The placenta was still hanging out of the mother and the calf was laying on the ground still wet from the birth. As we watched he took his very first steps which I captured with my camera. I got out of the car to take more shots, but the mother started getting nervous because of our presence and ushered the baby calf away. It just goes to show you that all mothers by nature worry about their children and make it their goal to always protect them. That’s why it’s so hard to let them go.
