I raised Brian to grow up and become . . . himself. To follow his own path. To discover his own life. To leave me. It has always brought me great joy . . . to watch him UNFOLD . . . right before my eyes.
I'm especially happy that Brian and Lauren found each other. The two of them seem just perfect for each other. As a Mom, there is really nothing better than watching your kid . . . grow up and find happiness.
And I am seeing that in Brian now . . . because of Lauren. I am looking forward to seeing the future the two of them create TOGETHER. I'm going to love watching their lives continue to . . . UNFOLD.
Last week, I sent Lauren a note (saying pretty much the same as above) along with a little "token" -- a symbol, I guess, of my passing Brian's childhood into her hands (and heart) . . . for the next phase of his journey.
I'm confident that Mr. Bun is in good hands!
