Preparing for the Empty Nest
Parenting is one of my greatest joys. Like many others in our age group, my wife and I are preparing to enter the empty nest stage. Our youngest is finalizing his plans for take-off. I plan on savoring the view from my nest because I will get the opportunity to look up and see how high they can soar. Yes, my goal as a parent has always been to encourage our children to test their wings to their limits.
Life is filled with transitions. I remember how excited I was when I moved out and ventured into the unknown. Now it's time for our children to live their dreams. It's also time to dream new dreams with the love of my life. There are new chapters to write and empty pages to fill. Carpe diem, my children.
