Overcoming Empty Nest

Updated on December 29, 2013

God blessed me with three wonderful children..Two girls and a boy;.

Before my kids were ever born I knew I was going to be a stay at home mom. My babies were the center of my life and I couldn't bare the thought of someone else raising them. I put my kids before any one and any thing,

The years passed and soon one by one my kids left home. They didn't need me to wipe their nose are kiss away their tears any more.

I felt so abandoned and alone. I didn't know what to do with my self. Looking back I can clearly see the many mistakes I made while raising my kids.

The number one mistake I made was putting my husband second to my kids. The consequences are my husband and I have no relationship. What now?

My first priority now is fixing my marriage. I also joined my church choir and got a part time job, These changes did help my empty nest but did not cure it, A part of me will always miss my kids being small and at home with me.

      Sorry empty nest has been difficult but it also sounds like it's teaching you life lessons and giving you the chance to do concentrate on you. Great hub that will be helpful for others going through the empty nest situation.
