ENS - Empty Nest Syndrome

With 3 sons living away and a daughter now married, here we are - ENS. Empty Nest Syndrome. Pyschologists tell us: "ENS is a sense of loss, sadness and lonliness that occurs when children leave home"Every parent goes through it and feels it to a greater or lesser extent - especially mothers. It is normal. For those who have close family, it is a feeling of emptiness. Where did all those years go? What now is my purpose? Our life has been filled with children, their things and their friends. Life. Noise. Interruptions. Comings and goings. Now it is quiet.
Time to embrace a new season. Fresh opportunities and freedoms: travel, study, hobby, serving, friendships.
Time to invest in marriage. New things together, fresh intimacy.
Beverley thinks it is time to foster...help!!

One cannot assume things. It calls for deep honesty with myself, not to be led by emotions but by an honest appraisal of who you are and your capacity to be who you are. Charity ceases if not based on what is true, otherwise people, those loved, can be hurt.
