What it will be like …

We shared a good yet disturbing week around the house. Good in that Patty and I spent some time hanging out, working on a project or two and gathering tomatos. Disturbing in that we realized that one day the week we enjoyed will be the staple for our future. Kimberly now married and Tommie away on a mission trip left us to experience what life will be like when the “nest is empty.” Talk about weird. We are ready for Tommie to be home – just a few hours away.

I was reminded that while there will be some great adventures for us, the longing for the “empty nest” is another way of wishing our lives away; a tragic decision to many make. So, we look forward to enjoying our next few years with Tommie – what a beauty!
