I've talked before, as many a Mother has. about what's it's like when your kids start dating. But no one really talks about what it's like when they break up with their Girlfriend/Boyfriend. We've all gone through Breakups in our lifetimes. But like everything, it's different when it's your kids.
She was not only our son's Girlfriend, but she was part of our family for over 3 and a half years.
She also worked for me for over a year & a half, when I managed a Clothing store. She's a precious, sweet & fun girl.
She was part of the family for so long, she even made it into one of our Family Santa photos! :)
And I have to admit, I cried when they broke up. Since then (It has now been awhile since they broke up and I got both of their permissions to write this Blog post before hand!) :) She has invited our family to see her sing & we all went. The day I sat in line for the Hunger Games Premier, she came by & sat with me for a while so we could catch up on each others lives. She has even brought her new Boyfriend by my store so I could meet him. I had to just keep reminding myself if it's not meant for these two great kids to be together, than God must have someone even better for each of them.
And my other son, Zach now has a pretty serious Girlfriend, Kendra, that we love & are having fun getting to know as well. And my girls, no matter how much they might protest, are not yet dating! :) But as my boys bring girls in & out of their lives, there will always be one girl that's always here. Mom!
