It’s now official, I can add a new title behind my name—Empty Nester. Ahh, the nest. It conjures up such a pretty picture, doesn’t it? The perfectly shaped orb of fluffy straw and mommy bird feathers . . . such a safe, cozy, and comfortable place for the baby bird and her parents. You can just picture the bird family sharing a nightly meal. Mommy bird covers baby with her wing, while daddy bird is never far away, and always keeping watch.
