What is this strange feeling of happiness and sadness at the same time? It came as a complete surprise to me today. Three days ago my oldest son proposed to his girlfriend. They are giddy in love and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them. She is a perfect match for my son. She is a strong and beautiful woman of God. I have known her since she was a young teen and now she is to be the future Mrs. Hudson. I am happy.
I asked The Lord, what is this that I’m feeling? He told me it’s the reality that my baby boy is not little anymore and it’s time for him to fly. It’s time to cut the apron strings, so to speak. I have watched as he has grown and matured, knowing that this day would come eventually, but I think I was living in denial that it would be so soon. My little guy who used to love puppies and playing baseball and bringing his mama dandelions from the backyard is all grown up now. He is a man who is soon to have a wife. How did this happen so quickly? How could it be that it has been 22 years since he came red-faced and screaming from my womb? So many happy memories of his childhood are flooding to my mind…precious memories that I will have forever and ever.
