What do we do after the celebrations and congratulatory send-offs for our children who go on to college, military service or leave home to make their mark in the world in various ways? From the nest we created and nurtured them, our children spread their wings and fly away. When all the excitement and shuffling is over, home can become very quiet and lonely.
Empty nester’s grief is often an overlooked component in the lives of parents and guardians. Many of us have not fully prepared for this stage of our lives. A difficult period of transition, there is need for emotional support.
The Empty Nest Group offers a place in the Plymouth Church community where folks can gather and support each other in an environment of more than just friendly advice, but less than therapy. Group meets 9:30 am to 11 am, four Saturdays, starting Saturday, October 20, in room 322. Vicki Schoettle will serve as facilitator and June Hayakawa-Fung is staff contact for this group. Please join us if you feel in need. --Toni ArthurSubscribe
