The Nest Is Empty.

Our youngest of four left home yesterday.
He is now settling into Christchurch where he will study at engineering school.
Before he left, he went fishing a few times. He caught this amazing sea-run trout at a beach not far from home. His Dad went along too. They weren't away long when this fish was landed.
It was in beautiful condition. If I remember correctly it weighed in at five and a half pound or was it six?
A great catch anyway.

His older brother said it was a catch of a lifetime!
Although our nest is empty, we have many, many special memories.

  1. I understand! an empty nest. For us as a mother an emotional point in our life! But your son can catch now the real life explore experiens.But when we(mothers/women)use /have our hobbys and making nice things to do in free time,we also began a new life. And when the kids come home on a visit they like us more, because they miss us also!! many greetings from mieke.

  2. I love those words. Thankyou Gebreidesjaals, I appreciate them.

  3. I always looked forward to when the kids were grown and left...then my last one did and it was so hard on me...moms are weird that way I guess!

  4. Someone once said to me, 'Once a Mum, always a Mum.' How true.
