and I'm the one who's left crying. Matthew is such a big boy, ready with car in hand he's excited about going to Summer Camp. I dress him in the most appropriate TShirt I can find stating...100% GOOD, 10% of the Time. We are all excited and off to Summer Camp we go. We arrive at his class and he jumps right in saying Hello to everyone he meets on the way. A few minutes later he gives me a kiss and says "Bye Mama"...sort of just telling me to be on my merry way. I wave goodbye as the lump builds in my throat and I can feel the tears coming. My baby is not a baby, he's a well adjusted toddler ready to explore. As I head my way back to the car with my hubby all I can think is Matthew is ready for an adventure! But Mommy needs a box of tissue!!
Maya Angelou : The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.
