There have been song sung about it. There have been books written about it. You will often hear grandmothers talking about it. What is that you may ask? It is the age-old thoughts about when children grow up.
I am learning all to well, that life experiences are fleeting. You have your children. You go through the sleepless nights. The potty training. The first skinned knee. The bully on the playground. The first broken heart. The sports, the concerts and all the stuff in between. You wonder when things will slow down. When you will have time to sit and not have a pile of laundry and dishes piled to the ceiling.
Mark my words, it will happen. And you will want it back when it does. The house becomes quiet. The squabbling is gone. You can talk to your spouse without interruption. You will find yourself looking for things to do to stay busy. But you need to remind yourself that this is a good thing.
You have raised them right. You have given them wings. They now have a chance to show you what they can do…so sit back, relax and enjoy…
