Empty Nest Syndrome

It's a bittersweet time in my (and my husband's) life right now. It's exciting to see our children becoming adults and moving on to the "real world" out there, and yet there's a little sadness that's in our heart as the house feels empty without them at home. I feel like I'm a mama bird who took care of my baby birds from the time they were eggs in the nest, to becoming little birdies, feeding and caring for them and now, these birdies are learning how to fly on their own. But of course, they'll fly back home once in a while.
