    My daughter started college this year and I am really missing her today!! At times though, it is nice to be an empty nester.

    love this very creative Pick, plus fabulous soft colors, appreciate your sharing of this milestone for you!! it’s good to be reminded of what our parents feel when we leave home, I left originally 25 years ago, after college for my first “real job”, and miss my home town and family, even though I do go back yearly to visit.

    Thanks ladies, A letter, an Email or a phone call will soon be a most cherished thing..
    Being a ‘Mom ” isn’t easy… have to hold them soo close & guard every moment to keep the safe & well, then you havr to undo all those attachments & let them go. What are you, when you are not a “Mom” in the ways you have always been..?
    A blue time, but that is the whole point,raising them to be self sufficient ~

    As you know I will be an empty nester next year. This pick really hits home after this weekend. At an open house, we watched her walk off on her own for a prospective student session. Wow – that was tough. But like you said, we do want them to be self-sufficient.

    It seems as if there are a lot of good mothers here~
    My hubby just said ,in reference to letting them go~ “You have to or you wouldn’t be a good mother~”
    Yes, but so hard to do!!
