Beginning the empty nest season of life can bring a lot of different emotions. But you might find it is more sweet than bitter.
I expected to be the mother who wept uncontrollably when my children left home.
Turns out… not so much. In fact, kind of the opposite.
My eldest son got married last summer, and my youngest just tied the knot in June.
Don’t get me wrong–there have been moments of deeply missing my children’s presence in my home and of questioning my role as a mother now that they’re gone.
But honestly, overall, this empty nesting business has been more sweet than bitter.
