Today is my son’s 19th birthday. It is hard to believe. It seems that it was just the other day he was holding my hand to cross the street. Now he is getting ready to graduate from high school and after that to college.
Children test you and put you through so many emotions. It is worth every moment. My son has turned my hair grey, made me want to tear it out and made me smile and laugh. It has all been a learning process for him and me. Being a single parent was not easy. I wish I had made more money so I could have bought a house because he always wanted to live in a house. We lived in apartments but they were nice apartments and he always had his own room.
He may of not had a house to live in however he always had clean clothes to wear and healthy food to eat. I have gained strength and confidence knowing that I was able to provide for him. It will be sad to see him leave for college but I can’t wait to see how he will do on his own.
