Surviving the Empy Nest~

It was a beautiful day in Stillwater, on the Oklahoma State University Campus. My husband and I had a wonderful visit with our youngest child, Forrest. 

After three weeks of uncontrollable crying outbursts at the site of any mushy commercial, or the sound of every heart-string-tugging song on the radio (do not get me started on the morning I heard Stevie Nicks, "Landslide") I'm finally able to keep it together.  I can now walk into the empty bedrooms of my house without feeling like my heart is going to stop beating.  

From the moment my children were born, I was M-A-M-A...home room mom in my children's classes, involved in PTA.  I coached my daughter's cheer leading squads and basketball teams in grade school, and basically was the loudest in the stands at my son's baseball and football games.  I elbowed my way to the front row of all of his concerts, and bumped my way across the country with him, on a tour bus, with a huge plastic tub of school books so as to tutor him through his Freshman year of high school. 

All of the jobs I took were conducive to Mom status.  I taught pre-school, so my children could be in class with me, or just down the hall.  I conducted swimming lessons in my back yard so my munchkins could float around me, and eventually become my paid helpers.

One of my best high school friends became an optometrist, and I went to work for him  because he understood how important my children were to me, and always said, "go" so I rarely missed a tip-off, kick-off,music show or  tour.  It was a smart move making my future boss God Father of my oldest daughter when she was born, huh?  Mom strategy 101~

I look back and know how very blessed I was to have my children so close to me.  I made mistakes and would have done a few things a bit differently, but I shared in their laughter daily and was there to wipe their tears when they cried.

I realize now, I'll have more time for writing, I can keep my house spotless, the food lasts longer in my fridge, I have less laundry, and can even run around the house naked at will but, the Good Lord knew I would not do so well with this total empty nest thing, so He provided me with 4 precious grand children before total abandonment occurred.  

My nest is still nicely feathered and only part-time empty.  I can fly away for the day to visit my sweet, free grown up birds, and bring back (gummy) worms for my precious g-baby chicks who are under my wing several days a week. 

Perching on a branch to watch my young ones free fall in an unsure manner at first was gut wrenching but, to see them soar in flight on their own is thrilling!  




Wonderful visit with the best tour guide on OSU's, Stillwater campus.  I brought he and his house mates home made chicken and dumplings and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  Once again, Mom Strategy 101,on "How to always be welcome in your grown children's lives"~


My two favorite creations on earth---the Colorado Rockies and my three precious children:  Jessica 26, Skylar 25, (they were Irish twins) and Forrest, 21.  I thank God for them.

Being a mother is not a easy task you have to be bold and brave enough to face the challenges of life and to grow up your children. it is not a easy task to teach your child even a very small thingand take care of your home also. Mothers are really amazing in true sense.
