This was our first Easter as empty nesters. It seems like I’ve gone through the entire year marking the holidays, marking the firsts, feeling melancholy about the change in our status. Instead of looking backwards, I prefer to look forward. It is a conscious thing. Being happy is a choice. I chose to:
- Remember the Easter baskets I gave the girls.
- Remember the time I got the Easter Bunny to visit Jodi at school.
- Enjoy spending time with my husband.
- Enjoy the new freedom of being an Empty Nester.
