As I write to you my heart is heavy. My son Jesse has left home to go to college, he is the last of our children to leave home. Jesse is a very special young man with good solid values and a caring heart. I will miss him in ways that I can never explain. His growing up years have been a pleasure, I never had to really raise my voice to him, because he always did what I told him to do. The house feels empty now, I am taking care of my godmother now, she is 104 years old. She has been a pleasure to take care of and an honor. Being a mom is what I do but I know it’s not who I am. My son was so excited when he left, everything was packed and ready to go. At church on Sunday my son went up for prayer, my Pastor had a bible verse for him it was from Joshua 1 chapter verse 6. “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them.” As me son starts this new journey in life the church prayed for his head, heart and soul, that God would be his guide. Me letting go so he can fly away was hard, I let him know that he was taking a part of my heart with him. I’m proud of him and I know that God has a plan for him. It’s just hard letting go. I know that a lot of you have had this happen in your lives as well, it’s a part of life. I pray that God gives you the strength to let go of things in your life that need to go and return back to God.
