All of our 6 children have flown the nest. It certainly made me teary with all of them and I think that is normal. We have nurtured them from the moment they were conceived and I think that it is as if a big part of us feels like we are losing them. I have found that although it gets a little easier with each one, it is still like a grieving process. It is a painful process sending them into the world, just like bringing them into the world. I have felt numb inside like a wooden doll as I waved my children goodbye. But the healing comes in the satisfaction of a job well-done after you see each fledgling fly.

Motherhood doesn't stop. And neither does your marriage. You will continue to be the hub of your home, even when your children have flown the nest. They will still need your advice and support. And your dear husband will always need you.

As the children start leaving, would be a great time to concentrate on developing mutual interests and hobbies and keeping that flame of romance alive. I know it seems like you have nowhere to go- but it truly is just a bend in the road! The bond of motherhood- indeed parenthood, never is broken- they may be separated from you, but they are forever in your heart.
