Are you struggling with ‘empty nest’ syndrome? It can be quite traumatic for some parents. We put so much time and effort into raising our children ….. and it can seem like ….. in the blink of an eye ….. they are off! Just like the mother bird built this nest in our garden ….. hatched her eggs ….. flitted around to find food for the hungry little critters ….. kept bigger birds away from them ….. and then they were gone. But we must raise them to become independent and capable citizens. Our children are God’s gifts to us but they will always be His. If we let them go ….. they will always want to come back!
