Hatched, raised and flown. Gone.
In my last post I mentioned that my son is now living away at university – born, raised and flown the nest. Gone.
So, where did 18 years go?
It was only yesterday that he was born. And what felt like a mere 5 minutes ago that he was learning to walk, talk and then heading off to Kindergarten. Time flies doesn’t it!?
I have to believe that my years of parenting have given him wings and the ability to soar. Made him want to venture beyond his very comfortable nest.
But I miss him big time!!
And now there is a void in the house with empty rooms and spaces where my son once occupied.
But instead of feeling sad every time I walk past these ‘gaps’………I decided to re-decorate.
I ‘feathered the nest’ for me!
Let me tell you there is nothing better than lying on a comfy chaise with a view out the window, my favourite books, pictures of loved ones and the remote in my hand.
