In the past, there's noise and bustling in the house with your kids. But now, it's deafening silence.
I knew this feeling well.
My three kids - two are now working young adults in their 20s and one in her teen - have their own separate schedules and lives now.
I missed my youngest daughter's playfulness and my taking her to Tom's World or anywhere. In the house, it can be overwhelming the memories of her childhood with her older sister and brother.
Even the sight of a kids' nook in the mall which we used to frequent was priceless after her departure and busyness for school and sport.
Generally, I feel glad how my children turned out to be "independent" and in pursuit of their passions, young though they may still be.
As parents, we have one healthy goal for our children: to give them wings to fly and foundations to empower and prepare them for life.
