Another Saturday the sun shining brightly the radio raucous with song the house deathly quiet. My children grew up. They are not here. My purpose has changed, like so many women and so many men who wear a brave face in their empty nest. I’ve got things to do. I can serve my community. I can live my own life. But the fact is I miss them running around in their underwear making noise, eating bowls of cereal during Saturday cartoons or plans to play somewhere. Today there is eerie silence and I don’t know what to do with myself. Even if they were here they wouldn’t be little any more. I miss that. On my lap with sticky faces and sticky fingers. I was grateful at the time. I knew I would miss it. I never took it for granted.
