Welcome to the Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T where we will approach the difficult topics of life, have inspiring guests, and bring empowerment to all. This community is a place where we can be who we are instead of who others want us to be.

Mar 30, 2019

Melissa T. Shultz​ has written about health and parenting for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Readers' Digest, AARP’s The Girlfriend, Next Avenue, NBC’s Today.com and many other publications.  She is the author of From "Mom To me Again" (How I Survived My First Empty-Nest Year and Reinvented the Rest of My Life) has some solutions for those left with an empty nest, how to survive and thrive. Nothing prepares you for your children leaving the nest.

 

I remember after I left home my father got choked up by the mark on our oak tree where the rope used to hang for our swing when we were growing up.

 

When our first two kids left the nest it was so empty at the dinner table, where we were used to lots of Laughter, stories, and antics of the day. I mourned the loss for two years

 

I cried when I left my youngest at kindergarten the first time I left him, because he was fine without me

 

I cried when we dropped our same son off to his college dorm room. When it was time to go it was all too soon. The time is over all too soon.

 

The thing is they will be fine without us. It is us as parents that will feel the greatest sense of loss.

 

Today we will bond over making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches decorated with hearts and smiley faces. How we put hearts notes in our children's lunches that said I love you.
