    Beautiful and that surely happens when our children move away and start building their homes. Lovely words, Radhika.

      ❤️❤️ a happy yet sad phase of life Cindy. While some are more adaptive, others feel the void very strongly.

    So many mothers find themselves lost in deep depression. That picture reminds me of that, as related in your story.

    Interesting – the empty nest syndrome – didn’t know those words, thanks Radhika! For the parents, it must be a natural way to lull the sorrow of missing the children.

      Yes I guess so. They like to hold on to everything that reminds them of their children’s presence. Thanks Deb. Have a good day!

    Oh such heart-felt words Radhika!! I can so much relate to them. After my marriage my father kept the same seasonal flower plants for 5-6 years saying that those plants reminds him about me hovering around them all the time ☺️😊

    You did such a good job of “showing” the feelings of the parent here. I’m sure many parents can relate to this.
