When children are small, it’s hard to imagine a time when they will be independent. But it happens faster than you can believe.
Spring, a season of wedding showers and graduations, is particularly bittersweet. Celebrating milestones together helps, as do shared traditions, such as monthly family meals. Our son in Halifax can’t join us, but we look forward to family Skype calls. And invest time in growth opportunities for yourself – travel, take a class or change careers.
When you have grown-up children, you learn that it is possible to live – and even thrive – while missing pieces of your heart.
