(losing a child, gaining an adult)
Our youngest, after much searching, found a house in town, to make her life easier getting to and from work. She had been away to University for three years, travelled to the Galapagos and all through Central America for three months, but, no matter how old they are, a parent cannot help but worry about their children. But, I get the feeling, the sooner parents accept their offspring as adults, the better it is for the children.
The other feeling in the house, although, whilst she lived at home, she was pretty independent and kept herself to herself, I still miss her being around on a regular basis; and she only moved out yesterday!
