Empty Nest


Today has been filled with bittersweet emotions for me.  Our last child to move out and
'fly the nest' did so today.
 
My heart is a bit overwhelmed, my emotions are raw... Both my parents are gone and I can no longer reach out to them... Our sons are wonderfully grown and now living on their own... My husband retires in 17 work days after 32 years of service... Whether I feel it or not, all these events in my life tell me I am growing older... Where did the time go?

I am thankful of the blessings and trials God has allowed me to experience in my life.  

Like a good novel, each chapter is good to the very end, so I joyfully await the next chapter in my life.

Hum, I wonder what is in the next chapter?

  1. Hi Tami,

    I know its a difficult time for you, but I think with no more kids in the house and a your husband retiring, its the dawn of a new adventure!

    I can't wait to read about your new chapters in life. Perhaps you will be able to take another trip to France one day!

    Hugs,
    Sarah

  2. I know this is an old post...but I was wondering if I would be able to use this nest graphic in my blog header? I don't want to sell anything with the image, I just would like to use the graphic on my blog.

    Thanks!
