It gets easier, but it’s still not easy.

It’s been 2 years since my son started college. When he left Sunday to go back to his apartment, I still feel a wave of sadness.

The hardest part in raising children is not the midnight feedings, or the sacrifice of your career, or paying big money for college.

Looking back on parenthood, those parts are easy compare to what I have to do now – letting go.

You make an investment into your children with everything you’ve got, and then you have to let them go.

I am not looking forward to my daughter going to college in the fall.

    Ok, I posted again, but just about food. Not teaching SS now, mouth is still too dry to speak for any length of time. Sorry, no suggestions to get thru Luke faster without sacrificing details of the text. Yeah, I agree its tough to let go. Is it their presence we miss, or is it that we miss having a say in their day to day lives? Jimmy

    You hit it on the head, Jimmy.
    It is both their presence and having a say in their lives that I miss.
