New Season of Life

We've had the privilege of watching a mamma bird tend to her chicks.  She built a nest in a wreath on our front door.  Every day we'd peer thru the window as mamma would build the nest, to get it just so.  And then one day we saw 1 egg, and then 2 eggs and then 4 eggs.  As the eggs hatched, we had a first row seat of her taking care of them, as they "cried" for food she would tend to them.   And then one day, as they got a little older, watching them all "outgrow" the nest.  Literally!  They got so big that they couldn't even fit into the nicely built home that mamma bird created.  And so... the next chapter of their lives begin as they flew off.  We're getting ready to do the same thing with our youngest child.  He's graduated high school and is about to embark on the adventure of college life.  I've been all over the place with my emotions.  I have finally come to terms with it and I am embracing not only his new adventure but my own.  Our entire married life we've had a baby underfoot.  We've never had the pleasure of it just being the two of us. It will be a new found adventure for my husband and myself as we learn our "new normal" for just us two.  I am thankful that we not only love each deeply, but we also like each other.
