Today was a day of shifting furniture, lifting boxes and scraping knuckles. I now have sore shoulders and arms. Our son and his wife have a new home. They have just bought a house in the far east (Fife, to be exact).
It is great to see our kids move on and set out for themselves. It reminds me of a quote:
“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Once my arms and shoulders feel less sore I am sure I will, once more concur with this.
