The Bird Will Soon Leave The Nest

My youngest son Sean has passed his exam. HE DID IT!! He called earlier to give me this excellent news. We talked for a bit and then I broke down crying for joy in the arms of a professor at work, oh pffff.

Sean, cheers, I’m so very, very proud of you!

Now Maastricht University is waiting, student life is beckoning…

*jumps around*

Love you,
your mom

Sean is the one in horizontal position, with the red clown nose ;)

  1. Congratulations to both of you! I came across a saying somewhere, something like: There are two gifts we give our children; one is roots; the other one is wings. :)

    • Thanks, Terri! Sean deserves all the credit. Though yesterday he told me he didn’t study that hard. Ahem. Trying not to make a point out of that, since he passed ;)
      And the hugs are appreciated, I need them. Soon.

  2. Sean, gefeliciteerd met het behalen van je VWO diploma, wat goed ;-) En nu op naar Maastricht waar je aan een mooie nieuwe uitdaging gaat beginnen.

  3. Hugs and best wishes as you and your little bird soar to new heights in your relationship. The road may be bumpy, I speak from experience, but intermittent rainbows show up when you least expect them. And there’s always that pot of gold at the end…your son’s love…there, forever. ;)

      • He’ll always have limbs upon which to alight.

        Communities are like centuries old trees…family, friends, and others provide the “branches” and the “limbs”…where we can sit a spell…draw breath, re-energize…and jump off into the wild, blue yonder once again.

        i think moms are the trunks… :)

          • I think…therefore…I am.

            A nun said that sometime…long, long ago. Can’t remember whose quote it was. Catholic nuns were encyclopedias…for every known…and unknown…piece of trivia.

            …i owe my thoughts…most of them…to the good sisters.
            :lol:

  4. It’s such a bittersweet time. Great pride for their accomplishments, hope for the future, and sorrow that the time with us went by much too quickly. Congratulations on your son’s success.

    • Indeed, Christine. I could laugh and cry at the same time. But for now it is time to be happy :) Thank you for putting into words exactly what I am feeling.
      Now it is the time to set him free. Just like our parents did with us.

Let me hear your voice.
