Learning to let go a little at a time.

Updated on March 10, 2011

Is He Really Going?

He's getting older.. conducting himself in a more mature manner even though he still has adolescent tendancies.  Of course he does, what am I talking about, he is 12 going on 13 in March.  I guess I lean on him alot because he was always the sensible one when I needed him the most.  He does't know it, but I am so proud of him.  When he was the tender age of nine, we were going through one of the worst times in our life as a family.  We were hit with a mental bomb that ripped our family apart. One day while we were driving, I pulled over and asked him how he was dealing with it all.  He said to me, "Mom, God is always going to take care of us, just give it to him."  At nine can you believe it?  My son has this way of thinking and saying things at the right time.  He is a top notch honor roll student and a safety patrol and has every intention of becoming a law officer.  My husbands uncle sent him airplane tickets to go to Florida.  He is going to treat him to Mets game and something else I cannot mention because he may read this.  I am of course having a hard time with this because he is going on an airplane by himself.  I know he could handle himself, I am not worried about that, I am however a paranoid freak when it comes to planes.  Last year we took a cruise and had to fly to Tampa Florida and when the plane took off I was gripping the seat and tears were rolling down my face I was so scared.. I guess I shouldnt be, I should do like my son says, Give it up to God.  I treat my son a little different than other 12 year olds, because he has a level of maturity that other 12 year olds dont have only because they havent seen as much.

I know he will have a good time when he goes.  I just want him back already and he didn't even leave yet.  boy I'm bad!!! I do have a surprise however for him when he comes home.

I cant say it, but my readers will know about it.

well I was venting and that is what this hub is about.  Anybody have kids that get on planes, let me know.
