The Universe

I just finished writing my daughter a note to hand to her when I leave her at her University.  It’s all about trusting that the Universe shall provide and when it does not, then that’s when her parents come in.  But, seriously, the Universe does provide and I am a firm believer in this.  I keep telling myself this as I am about to embark on a new territory which is called the “empty nest!”  I will be giving myself some time to adjust and to adapt to the empty nest.  I do have a list of projects and then some.  My artwork has kept me motivated and given me so much purpose over the years, just as my children have and will continue to do so.  In hopes that each of you will be patient with me during this time of change and new beginnings for my daughter and for our family.

    Even though we teach our children to be fiercely independent, it does give you pause when they actually flee the nest. I wouldn’t have it any other way but as things fall away in life, we are left to wonder, “Who am I?”, “Where do they leave off, and where do I begin?”, “What is my purpose now?”, “Is that going to be enough?” “Am I brave enough to reinvent myself?”

    Kind of funny when you think about it…she and you are traveling the same path.

      Your words are everything. It is true how we have to both be brave and enjoy the journey of every path!

    Also, the letters in Loyola University spell I Love You ❤️ They must have had you and Amelia in mind! Good luck to Amelia and her parents.

    I can remember leaving my parent’s nest about 12 years ago when I went off to university. Your daughter misses you just as much as you miss her.
