And just like that another one leaves the nest.
The employer contacted him yesterday and today he is packing the car to be out of town by noon.
I'm so thrilled for him that he got a job where he wanted at the moment.
I'm so sad it's up north.
I'm trying not to cry that he won't be here for Christmas.
I was dreading the day one of my fledglings would say they won't be home for Christmas and now it is upon me.
But spread their wings they must. Jump out of the nest they must.
Did it have to happen so fast, though? Could they not have given him, and me, a little warning? Like say, a month or three? Sigh.
Had I known, we could have done a family dinner and given him all his gifts but as it is nothing is even wrapped. In a hurry, I wrapped the one gift I wanted him to open and that was an emergency road kit. Yes, the gift that makes Mom feel better.
Sigh, Congratulations Son! I really am incredibly happy for you!
