To New Beginnings

I've been busy readjusting my life and cleaning up downstairs as my son has moved out:0(   I am happy for him of course and he drops by  most mornings for coffee,....but my family room has echos in it, it is so empty and not only from the furniture he took, but from the missing voices. The family room was filled for years first with  young boys, then teenagers and for the last few years with young men and their ladies.    I shall miss them all, those young happy souls who spent so much time with us, but life moves on and now my son shall start on his road to  independence . I wish both him and his lovely Katie all the very best .
