I’m curious about whether any of you are about to face an empty nest and what you plan to do for the rest of your life…I am so stumped!When my four children plus 2 step-children were little, I used to think of all the things I’d do when I no longer had to take care of them. I had big dreams! Maybe I was fantasizing that there was a more exciting world “out there.” But now that I can step into that world “out there” I have no idea what it is I want to do…It went so fast. I used to hear my parents saying that but it is true. There were moments that seemed endless (listening to a kid crying at 2 a.m.) but the years just zipped away.I guess my suggestion to those of you with small kids is to really enjoy the little moments because they pass by so quickly…And they are the stuff of real life.And not to think that other people are having a more glamorous time because life is made up of exciting times and sort of quiet times and we need to enjoy them all!
