Adjusting the sail.

Vito coming home from playing golf told me: “mom, you have to help me pack.” (He is leaving in a few days back to school in UBC) I said, “okay. I feel sad already, I’m going to cry.” He answered: ” mom, I have been here too long already!”

1 and half month is too long? But this is home. It’s never too long when you’re home!

Haaaaay, this is what I am talking about. I don’t like love. Why does it have to entail pain and sacrifice?

And this kind of love you can’t jump ship. You just need to adjust the sail.



  • Children will leave the nest whether we like it or not. Better this way than failure to launch. We just have to accept this fact and make it easier for them as well. So, so much better than having a young adult sitting around the house in his/her pjs and you worrying more.

  • my youngest leaving for her internship at the end of the month.
    so technically all have left the nest.
    it’s sad and heart wrenching but what the person said on this thread that it’s better than having them around as bums is spot on!

  • “your children are not your children…they are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself….” Kahlil Gibran

    we mothers just have to remind ourselves this truth…
