I just hugged & kissed Writer Son good-bye. He is my firstborn. (Yep, it has been a very emotional week!) Tomorrow morning at 5am he will begin his two day drive from California to Texas to be with his sweetheart. He'll be finding a job & looking for a place to live. It will be the place that he & Miss M will begin their married life together after the wedding in October!
My heart is full. This will be a stream-of-consciousness post because when I feel this way it always helps to pour it out in writing. I don't feel bad at all, just full. Full of thankfulness for such an amazing & sweet man to call my son. I sat here on my couch & listened to him talk about how he loves hearing Miss M think aloud about the wedding plans & all the details, but that his mind is on the fun daily things of life together. He is fantasizing about going grocery shopping together, choosing their home or talking about their days at work in the evenings. (And yes, of course those are not all he is fantasizing about!) He has a silly grin while he talks to me, so cute, so genuine.
Writer Son is going to be a wonderful husband. I have always known this. Not sure why I have known this about him. He has always been one to think of the others in his life more than himself. He is a good, loyal friend to so many people. His gang threw him a huge going away party last night; the Facebook invitation said, "Let's get together & make him feel guilty as hell for leaving us, he should feel as bad as we do, bring it!" Ha!
We may not see him again until the wedding weekend. That is hard to swallow. But, O thank you God for Facebook!! Seriously! And Skype! I already enjoy hour-long phone chats with Miss M, we are good friends from when she was a student in our ministry school. I am so, so blessed in that area! Oh my goodness, I used to worry about how it would feel to watch my son give his heart to someone I did not know or worse yet, someone I did not like. But Miss M has been our family friend & Writer Son's Best friend for 5 years. Yes, I am extremely blessed, I know!
