My 21-year-old son, Greg, informed me tonight that he will be moving to Maryland in February (we live in Utah). We are from Maryland (except my husband who is from Utah) and he wants to be closer to his grandparents.
I have mixed feelings about this. I want him to continue to discover himself and who he is. On the other hand, he is leaving behind a beautiful and sweet woman – his girlfriend – not to mention the family here. He moved here from Marylandwhen he was 15 and a very troubled youth. We were able to support him and help him carve a positive path for himself which resulted in a happier life.
Greg plans to drive to Maryland in February. Until then we will cherish each moment with him. After that I will only see him twice a year.
