My children are grown.  My daughter is a mother herself, so even she will feel these words to her very soul.

My son married his love a few months ago and they have made their lives a thousand miles away from this Momma.  I don't know where time went.  When did they become functioning (read not needing me anymore) adults?  And how do I cope with this very empty nest?

I saw this song this morning on Facebook and my thoughts immediately turned to the curly topped little girl with eyes of pure blue and the long legged skinny soccer boy that flood the best memories. Happy Mother's Day!  Enjoy this beautiful song 'Slow Down' by Nichole Nordeman.
