One of the pleasures of having adult children comes when they move away. But it's not what you may be thinking. (Mother love never expires).
When close family members live in another state, I have a good excuse to travel to wherever they are. And that provides lots of opportunities for new adventures. Not only do I enjoy activities with children, stepchildren, and grandchildren when visiting their towns, but road trips provide even more opportunities for experiences in places I might not travel to otherwise.
