Enjoy Your New Season in Life!

Monday, November 21, 2016

This is a new season in life for me! As an empty nester and both boys living in Atlanta, I'm not sure about even putting up a tree. We use to do a live tree every year, with the boys taking turns as to who would pick out the tree, who would put the angel on top (as they both decorated) and who would pass out the gifts. They grow so fast!

We would have a house full of family members and gifts for everyone. Now, they are either grown and moved on or passed on and no longer with us. Life is just too short! It goes by too fast.

So, I plan to enjoy every moment of it with my husband, for as long as we have together!

    I like how you both keep the love sacred! I too have an empty nest and too far away daughter's family ( in Germany ) or my husband's son in Seattle. We will visit him in Nov. ☺️

    Life really IS too short not to make the most of every moment.

    Wishing you a very blessed Thanksgiving. AND I thank YOU for being such a wonderful friend.

    Empty nests are so difficult..maybe invest in a smaller, pre lit tree to make things easier...try skyping with your sons and old friends...
