Prayers, hugs and God's speed to you both. My oldest son will be 36 in December and I still remember crying as I put him on the school bus for his first day of kindergarten. It's all bittersweet. Best part, you had him. Think of how much you'd have missed if you hadn't.

No, it's not that I didn't want him going into Tennessee, it's because he would have had 3 transfers and 4 very long layovers that route. This one doesn't have any layovers and only has the 2 transfers. We went through Tennessee years ago. It takes forever to get through it. But it's pretty.

Sheesh, I almost fell of the chair when I read the title of your post. I though Deadly Sushi was leaving today.

Texasgirl, I wish your son well and I pray for his safe journey. Letting go is hard. I didn't want to let go of my grandson when he went off to college in September. But he is doing well. Hugs to you...............Linda

Tg I know this is bittersweet but in the end it'll all work out for the best.
I wish him well. You're a strong woman and you'll make it through this
rough patch. Until then just hang in there.

TG; My youngest daughter jsut moved from Michigan, my home, to Washington State. She did it to surround herself with people who shared her values and dreams, the same dreams and values her mother & I share. Of course we were worried, and it was hard to say goodbye. There were tears, and I still half expect to hear her car pulling into the driveway. But she has gotten a job she loves, and has surrounded herself with good people and quality freinds. I know that she had to leave to grow, to blossom into the great young woman that she is becoming.

My advice to your son is to surround himself with good people. If he does that, he will grow into the best man that he can be. And yes, he, just like all of us, had to move away to become himself, to find out who he is.

He will remember yours and his father's love, and you values. That will help carry him a long way. And expect phone calls.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
