I responded to Ms. T's poem about having an empty nest.


Kids will come as babes and they grow and grow.

Then they leave the nest before you know.

Those times go by way too fast.

But it's time for a new future 

A future built from the past.

So as long as you have the Lord Jesus by your side...
You'll never be alone!

So live life to the fullest and enjoy the ride!

I am also an empty nester, but I am thrilled
about it. I feel bad for the mothers out there
though who are distraught and depressed and
you John are right on the money "have Jesus by your side"
