I am now 41 years old and my youngest just turned 20, my older daughter and son are each married and I have 1 grandson. I look around at people my age and some are just getting started on having families and I am going through, Empty Nest Syndrome. Unfortunately, Empty Nest = Empty Pockets because we are still recovering from the wedding and we are still paying for college. I think Empty Nest would be more fun if it came with full pocketbooks…lol.
It is a strange place to be, a mother to grown children. You don't feel like you are that much older but when you look at your children, you realize that you must be because they are.

I will forever wonder what greatness we cut off 20 years ago when we decided not to have more children. I can only just imagine because I will never know. But my first three are pretty great so the possibilities are endless. I encourage my MARRIED children to have children, lots of them. I won't mind my home being full of grand babies, as a matter of fact, I can't wait.
Children add to my BLESSED LIFE!!!
