Thread Name: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
Subject: RE: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
Jeanie...nice quote from The Prophet, and inspiring follow-up story as well.

Amos: "The only reason empty nest should be unduly painful is if you lack internal resources to generate new interests and the ability to pursue them."

I agree completely. Maybe easy for me to say, as I have no children. Still, I've always thot truly good parenting results in strong, independent kids, kids that will want to make their own way in the world. And only by way of coincidence would that mean sticking close to family of origin.
