It's so quite here at home without my oldest son.  I miss you, my buddha!  My son has gone to a week long science field trip, miles and miles away from us.  Our home does not feel complete without him.   I hope I am not embarrassing you by writing about you!  Stay safe my sweetie! and here is a little poem for you (author unknown):

As you travel through life there are always those times 
When decisions just have to be made, 
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce, 
And the rain seems to soak your parade.

There are some situations where all you can do 
Is simply let go and move on, 
Gather your courage and choose a direction 
That carries you toward a new dawn.

So pack up your troubles and take a step forward - 
The process of change can be tough, 
But think about all the excitement ahead

There might be adventures you never imagined 

Just waiting around the next bend, 

And wishes and dreams just about to come true 
In ways you can't yet comprehend!

Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection and caring 
And somebody special who's there 
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest 
To stories and feelings you share.

Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends 
Are supportive of all that you do, 
And believe that whatever decisions you make, 
They'll be the right choices for you.

So keep putting one foot in front of the other, 
And taking your life day by day... 
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road - 
Don't look back! You're not going that way!
