March a Month of Promise
March a month of promise to me. I have had two sons born during the month of March and birth always brings promise. One son is far away or so it seems. His life has taken a different path than I could have imagined; but it is a path that he has found peace and love. A path that I have accepted and embraced. A path though, that is different than what I envisioned all those many years ago when I held him in my arms, when I read him stories, when I took him to school, when I went to his sporting events, when I went to visit him in Europe, when I...thought about his future. Do I grieve because it is different than what I dreamed? No, I celebrate. I admire him, respect him, and love him. I do miss him though. Life is different than I envisioned.
