A Plague and a Blessing in My Empty Nest

A Plague and a Blessing in My Empty Nest

As my own children have left for school, the empty nest syndrome hits hard.  As Elizabeth Cohen, the author of this article in the NY Times stated: “Someone had once told me parenting was the only job which, done successfully, eventually fires you.” And it’s true.

But somehow, just as our children who have gone off on their own have to make their way in a new life, so do we.

Empty Nest…a blessing and a curse.
