Despite the change is happening in my life, what I have done for the past 22 years holds strong.
This afternoon, unannounced, both of my children showed up at my place. We usually do eat together on Sunday evenings, but I hadn’t spoken to either in several days. In fact, I was thinking, I wonder how long we can go without chatting? My son will graduate from college in May. I expect him to fly the coop and live his own life. I do absolutely LOVE sharing time with my children, but I respect their growing up.
What a treat to have them come see me!
We ordered pizza, and as we ate my daughter asked my son where he will live next fall if he doesn’t have a set job. She asked if he will live with me. He responded, “Probably.” A little part of me wanted to pipe up and say, ‘Don’t you think you both should ask me?’, but I decided to stay quiet and cherish the moment.
It warms my heart to know that my children feel they are ALWAYS welcomed in my home.
Wherever I am
will be home
for my children.
