So Late So Soon


on the road
August 12, 2018- Andrew hits the road to Texas while his nephews wave goodbye. 

Andrew is my youngest child. He left three months ago to begin graduate school in Texas. I’ve gotten used to the idea of him coming and going. I’ve gotten used to having to travel to see him in his daily life setting. I’m not sure that I’ve gone three months without seeing him though, and it’s hitting me hard. 

I’m certainly not lacking for company around the house. I see my oldest son, Michael, approximately 5 days a week and text with him every single day. His boys (my little guys) are with us when he’s working so they are here overnight and all 4-5 days a week. My middle kid, Kris, texts most days and calls more often than in more recent years. And my husband is always around when he’s not working. 

Maybe it is the presence of all my other important people that makes his absence that much harder. Andrew is my quiet (QUIET) kid. He doesn’t text much. Calls once in a blue moon. And Skype or Facetime? Forget it! It seems like only yesterday I took for granted his quiet steady presence in the house. He didn’t have to make noise for me to feel it. 

Being a musician at music school, he can’t hide from me on social media so I am eternally grateful for live feeds and posts from his studio. I can hear him play. I can see that he’s alive and well. But, boy, I can’t wait for him to come home next week!

How did it get so late so soon? 

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
