My nest is empty

Friday, August 21, 2015

Wow, I never thought this day would come. I raised five children and helped raise my 3-4 year old grand son. Don't get me wrong I am loving my new found freedom but the quiet is like a slap in the face at times. The beautiful noise that filled my house is gone. The sound of fighting, laughter and just the movement of bodies going from one room to another is missing. There is a sadness, a loss that I feel. Not a doubt this will pass with time but for tonight at this moment I would love to hear mom I love you or mom make him stop.

    I know all about the empty nest. After our four children grew up we adopted three more and have our grandson living with us now. I don't think we will ever have an empty house.

    I understand... 3 years ago my daughter went to college and I really felt the empty space in the house. Look for something that you really enjoy doing, add a fun exercise to your routine, join a group/club, etc. if your mind is busy, you'll have less time to think about the new situation. It worked for me!!

    Good luck,

    When my "baby girl" went off to college, there was definitely a void. But in time, the void fills up with so many new things in my life that was happening. Yours will too fill up! Best wishes
