Yearning for some me time, I found a moment to two tonight to post a photo taken on our drive home from New Jersey two weeks ago. At one of the rest stops along our travels, I found this empty nest once filled with new baby birds. It made me sad to see it now exposed for everyone to see.
And then I got to thinking how traumatic it was when our first born left for college. After leaving the college campus, my husband and I pulled off the road and we both cried uncontrollably for a good 15 minutes. Our baby left left our nest. Our home would never be the same.
That baby girl turns 32 years of age today. She is a married woman and a new mother with a terrific family of her own. Her nest is just beginning to expand.
Happy Birthday, Erika!
