I have finally accepted that my married daughter no longer needs me like she use to. I live in a different state,now. But 3 to 4 times a year I return home to visit with her and her husband, or she comes to visit me. Now our encounters are not as warm as I would like. She is bright, witty, and intelligent. Her husband is a great guy who I have come to love like a son.
I feel left out. I have been widowed for several years. I feel lost.
How do you cope with a really empty nest. I keep busy with church work, and teaching professionally. However, I feel "blah".
