Back to School – Sadness or Joy?

I have read various posts by mothers about the sadness they feel after having their children home all summer. Here is my comment to all those mothers.

I loved my 3 children and loved having them around all summer. But back to school meant they were growing up. Maturing. Getting closer to independence.

Now that the girls are married and parents themselves I am having a blast interacting with them as adults. Watching them with their children.

Back to School time? Don’t hate it. Rejoice in it. It is part of the circle of life.
