Although lucky enough with this instance to know the move would soon be coming, I still need to choose how to move through this change.
I can choose to jump up and down in elation that only one son remains (he's looking for apartment, too), or I can moon over the fact that my kids will no longer be dependent on me.
Hmm. Let me choose elation because the list seems never-ending!
They get to be on their own.
I get to be on my own.
They can have their own place.
I can have my own place.
Oh, don't get me wrong. I am absolutely in love with my kids, but if you are a parent of soon-to-be-out-on-their-own young adults, then you know what I'm talking about.
I am just as excited for them as I had been when moving on to my life with my husband. I am just as excited knowing the world is laid wide open for them to enjoy.
What about you? What if your world and a new life was beginning on the horizon? What would you choose to do?
