My older son headed off for his second year of college today after a summer of galumphing around the house, adding his own colors to the tapestry of "home."
You'd think I might know the drill by now, but the fact is I feel an emptiness all over again.
As August draws to a close, those of us with children in college almost all feel that emptiness. One of our guys left Thursday. His absence was felt immediately. Somehow his room and the whole house feels even emptier than before he arrived in May. Skype, cell phones, and emails don't nearly do it.ReplyDelete
I guess all we can do is to take heart have feel the pride and joy in our children's growing maturity, independence, knowledge and experience.
