My wife and I are preparing for a strange new season of life...the empty nest. With our youngest son set to move off to college in a couple of days, our house will be suddenly quiet. For years we have been acquainted with the sounds of our sons and their friends in our house all evening...and often, all night. We are used to the noise!
In just a couple of nights, though, the noise will subside. Not forever. I trust they will still come home occasionally. However, once they leave for college, it is never the same. And that is ok! Life isn't supposed to stay the same.
