more thoughts on empty nest
It has taken me a week just to begin to get clear on what I feel. For all that I do (and I'm feeling behind despite my extra hour a day not spent driving a kid to school), I still feel not needed any more because both my kids are now away at school. Obviously my kids still need me in other ways, but there is something that has changed. My first reaction is how can I take what they taught me to give them and spread it out to the world.
