#JustAThought … When They Leave The Nest

Many of you have already experienced it when a child moves out. I also experienced it six years ago for the first time. Now the next move-out is coming up these days. I think I can speak for most of you when I say that we are proud when our children take on the challenge and responsibility for their own lives and take the step into their own independent future.

The older the children get, the fewer moments you have them all around you. I cherish those moments. I am also very grateful and happy that they all get along so wonderfully (including the three brothers-in-law). This photo was taken on our trip to Meersburg 10 days ago.

The Imperial Wedding – The Church


I am sorry that it took me so long to post part two. Once we received the photos from the official photographer it was already December and I had no time to go for this post.

Even if we do it for the best we can still be completely wrong. The way I experience something is unique and no matter how challenging it is for me can be handled even easier by others. Feeling sorry for someone who goes through a time which seems difficult for me can cause me to suppose it is difficult for the other one too. But is it really? And if it is, is it the same difficult? If I believe so then I make that other person’s problem my problem and I may care in a way which can become uncomfortable for them. Perhaps that difficult situation that person is in was caused by a decision I made and feeling guilty about it makes me overcaring. I may try to make something up which is not even desired.  Read more ›
