And there he was…

Jay n me on beach newcastle june2016 2

It hadn’t been a long time – only a matter of months, you could count them in days if you had to. But it felt like centuries. I missed my boy – he was loud and large in my little cottage, but now everything seems too large, too empty and way too quiet!

So landing in Sydney I couldn’t wait to see him and get a giant bear hug – his hugs are the only ones that are like that for me. It’s something very definable, tangible. Anyone else could give me a giant hug but they will never measure up to my son’s loving arms. I have never been a “clasp-hugger”, y’know, brief – per-functionary. There is no point in displaying affection if you don’t mean it. So yes, maybe he has only known how to hug like that – I love that about him. A helluva lot can be said in a hug. And hugging my son at the airport for the first time in ages was like a relief almost…a sigh of thank you Universe – he really is all good! He looked and felt healthy, his hair had grown even longer and his smile beamed across the crowd of anxious collectors. He stood out as if he was the only one in colour and everyone else was black and white.

I know I maybe could be describing everything else – and I’m sure it will come out, but my holiday was really about filling up my soul as a Mum. Spending time with that beautiful little spirit I had nursed, guided and shoved into this lovely young man in front of me, that I am so proud to call My Son.

  1. The love of a mother. I can feel that in your words. And how precious are moments with your son.
    God bless you both!
    I guess, I just need to enjoy the noise and clutter of my boys now. Time will come when Iโ€™ll miss their noise too.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’•

  2. Always hard to say goodbye after a visit, I hope he made your trip worthwhile but judging by the two smiling faces I’d say you both made each other happy. Jay is lucky to have you for a mum and you did a great job raising him Kait. Peace and love to you both with lots of hugs to come xoxo
