Well, the time has come. I’m now an official empty nester. It sounds like a disease, but I’m trying to embrace my newfound status in life.
You won’t believe what I found Sunday morning, the day after moving my youngest into college…
AN EMPTY NEST!
You heard me right…AN EMPTY NEST!
I couldn’t believe it either!
As I was taking Murphy for his morning walk we so happened to stumble upon a nest that had fallen from the tree above onto the asphalt.
So as I walked back to the house, nest in hand, I couldn’t help but reflect on the natural order of things in nature, animals, and humans.
We are all intended for growth….to leave the nest and soar.
I couldn’t help but wonder how many little birds flew from this nest. But, alas, mama bird’s job was done and it was time to move on. Such is life.
Was this symbolic or what? Talk about serendipity.
Here’s to all the new empty nesters out there. As for me, I’ve decided to embrace the change with vigor and my new motto is “life’s an adventure”. I’ll start my adventure with Paris next month, s’il vous plaît!
This has been a whirlwind summer for me.
