So, your youngest child has moved out and although you are busy with work, hobbies and planning for retirement, you find yourself sad and missing the call of “Mom!” That was my story, too, until the day a friend set me straight.
My son moved to NYC 7 years ago and this year he moved again; to Los Angeles. I live in Alabama. Then, we moved our daughter (and youngest) to begin her new life in Orlando, FL. I convinced myself for about 10 days that I would never see my grandchildren and that all of my nest building for the last 30 years was in vain. Then my friend said this to me:
“Wow! You obviously did something right to have such independent children!”
What wisdom! It was the perfect thing to say. It seemed worth sharing. It dawned on me that there are lots of women out there just like this friend of mine. Beautiful. Wise. Intelligent. and Over 50. CoziNest is dedicated to sharing their stories.
I am a writer, blogger, decorator and empty nester. I help women like me, explore ways to lead fulfilling lives so that we continue to have meaningful influence in our families and communities.
Welcome to CoziNest where wisdom and laugh lines are cherished!
Our two independent children.
The mission statement of CoziNest.
