Empty Nest is here. New day dawns.
Sunday, May 09, 2010
Yesterday my son left on the bus to start a new life many states a way. It will be close to where his father and step-family live, so he will have some support system.
God has been very kind to me by allowing me to meet a wonderful man. He has a heart of gold and believes in helping other people when he can. I truly hope he likes me as much as I like him!
If nothing else, it has been a blessing meeting him because it allows me to see possibilities of how my life may progress. I had for many years looked upon our home as our stability and imagined that I would live here forever. Now I am able to see my home as a wonderful stable place that served well as a place to raise my children and provide safe quiet harbor to others that needed it in times of life crisis.
I now realize that it would be ok to sell it and move on if the right partner came along. It may be butterfly dreams, but I can imagine him being that partner! We will have to see what path God puts before us. I am grateful beyond words for this insight!
