Be Careful What You Wish For…


Remember a year ago, you know when I was WHINING about the EMPTY NEST and just HOW much I missed having everyone HOME….. Well, be careful what you wish for!

Alyssa has made the decision to transfer back home after a year and a half at Valdosta State University. WHAT?!! Yes, it was a faith based decision, a difficult, very painful decision but one she felt strongly about making. A good strong mature decision…
Of course, her room had been take over by the other post empty nest child, Tanner. So my dreams of an office-reading-artsy room were interrupted by the need for her a bedroom.
Once again we made the trek to Valdosta, this time packed a U-Haul truck and returned with another load of stuff to squeeze back into our garage.
Now, both children are living under our roof. Two adults, with minds of their own, dreams of their own and destinies of their own. A very different dynamic. An adjustment. A transition. But then isn’t that what life is all about Charlie Brown?

  1. Well done friend! Enjoy your time with your kids!

  2. I believe it was Charlie Brown who said, “In the book of life, the answers aren’t in the back.” And ain’t it da truth?
