Today was a milestone day. A very tough milestone. Today I let my son ride off with a friend to school. I did not drive him to school. I did not walk him in the door. And I did not make an excuse to stick my head in the class. Instead, I did this. I said a prayer when he left and then I found his bike and helmet at the racks.
This was a big day. My baby boy is not a baby anymore. He is a growing, capable young man. And I am learning. I am learning to have faith in him. I am learning to let go. And this is what it looks like.
