The youngest of my four children left for college last week. He has settled in nicely and has already made many friends. I am truly pleased with this but I have been experiencing sense of loss since he has been gone. I was anxiously looking forward to him coming home for the Labor Day weekend but he just informed me that he will not be making the trip home. Of course, I told him no worries, but I'm very disappointed. Are these feelings of loss and grief normal?
