The Empty Nest...
it brings a confusion of emotions that maybe only other mothers can relate to?
Happy that they are independent enough to move away and not get homesick...
but, Sad that their growing up years went so fast.
Excited for their new life experiences, new career opportunities...
yet, Missing the excitement and activity that goes with having young people around.
Proud of their accomplishments and successes....
and, Lonesome for the sound of their voices in the house.
Emily finished all of her course work and moved home mid-December.
We have enjoyed her sweet company for the last three weeks.
Amy and Seth...on to their next rotation.
And today, Emily and Jake...on to their final semester.
Our nest is empty once again.
Good Luck and Best Wishes to all of you.
