Sarah

Pin It I can learn alot from Sarah.  Patience, acceptance, peace, calm.  She wanders through her days accepting the differences between her culture and ours with patience.  She has a sense of peace and calm that quietly surrounds her.  I understand why my son cares for her so deeply.  It was a joy getting to know her better these last few days and I look forward to many more visits with her and Lucas.

I have taken them back.  It was a four hour drive each way and while the car was filled with much conversation there, it was a lonely drive back without them.  Thank goodness for books on CD!

The rhythm of my day, still currently staying with my Mother, resumes once again to normal. The house has become quiet and now it will take a few days to reacquaint ourselves with the silence.

Watching these two young adults stumble through the learning curves of living on their own is both painful and bursts the heart with pride.  Who ever said parenting would end when the nest was empty?  It is so far from the truth.

  4. Parenting does not end when the kids grow up, it just is a different stage. Not all of mine have flown the coop yet, but it does take adjustment each time one leaves.

    1. A different stage for sure. It must be so different with more than one child. xoxo
