Not that these moments have anything to do with my research, I thought I would take a few minutes out of today and post what is going on in our lives. This week we have had 2 monumental moments. 1st, my son Corey moved to Mississippi to start college. I have to laugh when I think about this, as a child we spent many summers in northern Mississippi with friends of the family that we considered family. As a Mom, I am heart-broken that my son has moved and that he made this step without my help (his Dad took him down to school). I have talked with him a few times each day since he left, but I know that will not continue once school starts the next week.
Today, my youngest has started High School. She has decided to go to the Catholic school that I attended, as well as her older sister. I am overjoyed at the fact the kids are growing into fine young adults. Yet, I am sad that they need me less and less each day. Will there ever be a happy medium?
