I sang this song as a lullaby for my babies. I learned it around the time of The Great Gatsby movie....the first one.
The empty nest is nearly here. Emma will move to Missouri and the idea of her starting a family far away makes me so sad. Just as sad as I am that I can't be near Matthew, Melinda and the boys and having Patrick and Shelby in California is awful. Who knows where my Katie will be.
I've got my work cut out for me to bear this transition bravely,
because all my eggs were in one basket and I loved it that way.
It's all I ever wanted.
What'll I do,
