You’re done . . . but you’re not finished! And one more thing. You’re not alone. Feeling unsure? Scared? Expectant? Maybe even giddy? Is your nest empty—except for a bundle of mixed emotions?
The Empty Nest causes conflicting emotions. On one hand we’re ready to experience new challenges and adventures, yet on the other hand we’re sad that our kids are leaving or already gone. We’re also asking questions like, Who am I now? Does anyone need me? How will my marriage be impacted? How do I relate to my adult kids now? What is my new purpose? And we wonder, does anyone else feel like I do? Yes, we have and still do!That’s why Barbara and I have written this book. We hope it will be an encouragement to you as you navigate this unique season and discover your next great adventure.
