Saying farewell

My son and I walked up to the little pond.
He wanted to say farewell.
It will be a few months before he will return.

There is still ice on the pond.

In the woods, Autumn's leaves
still hold some color.

My daytime walk will be with my camera.
My chatting will be with the birds,
the trees and the clouds.
He will be in my heart.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
My son is a thought away!
We are connected.
I enjoyed his visit.
I will be back walking again and posting.
Thank you for walking with me.
Hugs and blessings,

Dear Becky,
I was so happy to see your comment!
I have missed you.
I long ago learned how to let go and watch my children bloom!
I respect their path even when it is very different than mine.

A friend told me we give our children wings so that they can fly :-) But it's hard when they do isn't it :-) He is credit to you I am sure. xx

Dear Chris,
Oh I so agree! I love to watch my children fly! I do miss them now that they both live so far away.
Both of my children have found happiness and for that I am grateful.

Dear Sherry,

This is a very lovely farewell walk, and Oh, so beautiful.

Your words and feelings are precious.

Much love,

Dear Sprite,
My son was so cute! He asked me if I would like to go see "Little Pond." He wanted to see the spring and the cave. It was a wonderful walk with him. Glad we went on the day he left.
I shall be caring for the pond and watching the woods.
Thank you for your kind words.
