♥️♥️ ‘There are two gifts we should give our children: One is roots, and the other is wings.’ .
We never stop growing and learning. While our children are growing up to become equipped to be independent, we are growing in ways that allow us to be able to let go of these humans who we, it seems, were just rocking in our arms only yesterday. ♥️ Just last night I put my forehead to Kenya’s forehead, my nose to his nose, and looked eyeball to eyeball with him as I have done soooooo many times through his life. 👁👁 And I saw those same brown eyes looking back at me. Melts this momma’s heart. ❣️ Every. Time. . .
They say the nights are so long....but the years are so very short. ‘Tis true. ♥️ This Momma has just over a month left before her babies will don their wings and fly away - literally - to the other side of the country. As I continue to prepare them, I ask myself, “Am *I* ready??” Well, right now I will say ‘Yes.’ But I know that as May 31 marches closer, I’ll have tearful days. 😪 And at the airport?? Forget about it!! I’ll be a hot mess!! 😆😭🤦🏻♀️ To my curly-headed babies: the years have been oooo so very short, and I’ll miss you every single day. Love, Mom ♥️. #momofboys #momofboys💙
