Today is our youngest’s 20th. No more teenagers and twenty on the twentieth! Hip Hip Hooray!
When your children grow and leave, there’s an empty swell in your heart that nothing else can fill. You can try to get a dog, make a geographic move, take up golf, get new friends/hobbies or shop until you drop – but nothing fills that space again, quite like it again.
At least, that’s my experience.
Happy Birthday to our little sunshine.
