In the next few weeks parents are going to experience their first empty nest.
I’ll never forget taking Whitney to Ouachita Baptist. She was so excited, and I was for her, but I was crying so hard I had to stop in the middle of the road on campus.
Then President Andy Westmoreland pulled up beside me and I had to drive off. I couldn’t talk I was sobbing so hard.
All my friends told me that in time, when she came home for the summer, I’d be ready for her to back to school.
That never happened. Every August when she pulled out of the driveway I was standing there crying like a baby.
