It has only been 5 days since I stuck my youngest on a plane headed to Europe but I feel like someone has kicked me in the gut. There is definitely an emptiness with him gone. I think everyone in the family feels it. The teenager has been spending time actually talking to me and went out to dinner with DH and I on Saturday night. I think he really misses his younger brother too. I am so happy that he is having a great time on his trip. He is having the chance of a lifetime. Being with my parents I know that he is safe and I am so glad that he isn't home sick..but my mother's heart is sad none the less.
