Getting Down and Getting Real
As parents we bring our children int the world, feed and clothe them, give them the best education we can, and most of all bring them up in the faith, letting them know that no mater what happens God is in control and will always love us.
Now Big K goes and demonstrates her new found wings by flying (no pun intended) out to CA to visit Nick. It's not like he wasn't just here, gee - young love.
As I write this my eyes are filled with tears and my heart is filled with mixed emotions: loss (empty), wonder, joy. As parents we have done our job, my baby bird has left the nest. I wonder if momma birds ever get sentimental as her little peep flies out of the nest?
She will be fine, we dedicated her to God a long time ago and I know he has great plans for her.
If your peeps have left the nest, how did you feel? How did you cope with it? I'm up for any suggestions.
