Flying Away

One minute they're small and with you all the time.
Then they're big and with you some of the time.
Then they leave to discover what life has in store.
I have only one left in my nest now.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Although my kids are young and will be with me for many years to come yet, I'm not looking forward to the day they leave....boo hoo.

Although they may spread their wings and fly, wherever you are will always be home.

Remember the old saying about if you love something, let it go, and it will come back to you? It is true, they do come back, but it does not make it any easier to let them go.
Nice pictures,
Kat

Such a lovely post, Jessie... I think I still have a long way to go, since my eldest is just 8 and the third one's still in the comfort of my womb. But you sure made me think of the future...very touching. :)

Ah Jessie, I know just how you feel. I was talking to my husband the other night about how fast the children have grown and will soon be leaving. I wish I could stop time and keep them with me - I have so enjoyed every minute of being a mom, of having them around me, of parenting them with my husband. But, yes time to let them fly.

Feeling the same way Jessie...my big girl has just turned 18 and my baby 14..there is a part of me that could just burst with pride at what amazing humans they are becoming and another that wants to cry when I think about this period of my mamahood coming to a close. This is my first time by your blog and I feel an instant connection..sending love ♥

Beautiful Art to illustrate your words! I have one home too and I've told him as he is the youngest, he's the one that has to stay on and look after me!!!!! He wasn't impressed :( !!!

Me too, but it has its good sides. I feel I am returning to myself after all these years and, no doubt, they will be back. Once a mother, always a mother.
