I found this on Beth Moore’s blog.
Thought it was a good reminder about preparing your marriage for the empty nest.
“You tend to get more attached to your mate when your kids are grown because you’re all you have left within your own four walls. It’s really important that you darling young wives and moms remember that one day, God and couple-willing, it will be just the two of you again. It will happen before you know it and, if you don’t have anything left, it’s hard to know where to start again. It’s one reason some folks just start all over but there’s no need. There are all sorts of adventures to have together. Just keep investing”
By mid August, looks like we will be back to an empty nest, but for now the kids are home for the summer.
