I am struggling a bit at the moment. My first born is off to University at the end of the month. Although I feel excited for him and so ready for him to leave the nest, I do admit that I am going to miss him terribly.
It's a bittersweet time for me. If all had gone according to plan, Nick would also be counting down his years left at school and making plans for his future. However, here we sit. Staring into an abyss and thinking about how life has unfolded for us. Thinking about the days, weeks, months and years in front of us.
I am not one to be a pessimist, but hey, sometimes I have to allow myself a pity party, work my way through it and then move on.
