The Nest....

These are my two that have flown from my nest. I will be off tomorrow to visit my daughter and my son heads back to his place to get ready for school. I am extremely proud of these two.

My daughter was married in January, and they are in the middle of a major house remodel. I will be helping for a few days , and we are also going to the yard sale fund raiser. We are looking forward to it and I hope I will be showing some great finds on Monday.

My son is a junior in college and a very talented artist . He loves the Lord, knows God's word well and is one of the most disciplined young men that I know. I will miss him once again.

God has blessed me with two wonderful children and a great son-in-law. I just thought I would take a little time today to do a little bragging. I will be away until Monday so I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Just stopping by...hope you don't mind.

I too have an empty nest and full life and with a son and daughter also. My daughter will now be a sophmore at Arizona State and will leave to go back to AZ in 2 weeks. Wow, I didn't realize it was only 2 weeks away until I just thought about it (I guess I'm trying to not think about it!)

Brag away...it sure sounds like you have the right too!

Take care and have a great week.

Jackie,

Brag all you want! You have every right to when you've done a great job of raising your children.

P.S. I never answered you back about my camera. It's a Canon PowerShot A540 and an idiot could operate it, hence it's perfect for me! (I am not electronically inclined at all).

Brag away! They sound and look like great little adults.

My sister is a young (37) empty nester and is going to be missing her girls too. One is a sophmore and the other a freshman. I didn't realize it was as hard as you hear, but seeing her go through it made me realize how precious time really is.

Wow, your children are just gorgeous. You must be so proud. I ask God every day for the grace it will take to bring my children to whole, God-loving, kind adults. Overwhelming when you think of it that way. But thank you for stopping by my blog today, I am so happy to "meet" so many wonderful people!
