Ola J.J!

My eldest son left for Peru today with his girlfriend + her family. He has been working very hard towards this all year and he's finally on his way.

It didn't hit me when I said g/bye at 4 this morning, but now that I'm awake, I'm starting to go thru Jay-withdrawal sniff sniff.

The day Jay was born, I knew he was destined for great things. He is a young renaissance man.

Knowing Jay has made me a better human. He has an inner wisdom that most 18 years don't have. The highlight of his trip is going to be visiting an orphanage and bearing dolls to little kids. And Macchu Piccu. Lucky!

Here is a song that played in the hospital a few minutes after he was born...

Forver Young by Rod Stewart

May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart youll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond
And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
And when you finally fly away
Ill be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell
But whatever road you choose
Im right behind you, win or lose
Forever young, forever young
Forever young ,forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young

I love you and miss you terribly, yet I'm proud of you for following your bliss

Love mom x

I'm just catching up on blogs after being 'not around' for a week.

You're such a proud mom but I know you're going to miss him. He'll be back to make you even prouder than ever. ;)
