    My 33 year old former difficult child just completed his course work to be able to add P.A. to his R.N. I am so proud of him. He is an awesome single father, a great nurse, and a wonderful son. He is the reason I have not given up on young difficult child. Now for the sad part. He will be moving to Nashville this month. It is a wonderful opportunity for him and he is so excited. Me......not so much.

    That's great news. I know you are proud of him but at the same time you don't want him to move. How far away is Nashville from you?

    He has worked hard! You must be so proud of him. Skype is wonderful but not the same.

    What a great accomplishment for (former) difficult child! I'm sure you will miss him but I wish him a lifetime of success and happiness in Nashville.

    Nashville is a wonderful place. Lots of history to use as an excuse to "visit" him. Lol. You have to go to the Gaylord hotel at Christmas and the grand ole opry. My mom goes there for health care at Vanderbilt.

    Oh, leaving the nest, for a second time and farther away, is a bittersweet moment.
