It's Friday, throw yourself a damn party already!
I'm about to receive a new title. It's one I supposed I earned, but not eager to own. It is the title of Empty Nester. I have watched all my girlfriends cry weekend after weekend as they have dropped their children off at different universities. Since my youngest is leaving, it leaves me and the dog to stare blankly at each other wondering where all the time went. I'm okay because I know that her future is ahead of her and she is going to have the time of her life. I'm grateful that she has the opportunity to go and spread her wings. It also allows more opportunity for me to spread my wings and fly into whatever the future has in store.
This weekend is also Mom's birthday. My Mother has been one of the great loves of my life. I can even begin to tell you what that woman has done for her family. I have been truly blessed to have had her as my Mom.
Whatever path you find yourself walking down, don't look back because the future is ahead. The future may surprise you, and more than likely it probably will. Explore every opportunity; one of them might just land you in an unexpected place that you never thought you would be, but it could be where you were meant to be all along.
Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone! I hope my American friends enjoy Labor Day and the long weekend that comes along with it. xoxo
