today, my parents left.
it gets "harder and harder to say goodbye". when they were out of site my son was bawling and I quickly went into the guest room pulling sheets etc. . of course, my main purpose was not to make a bed or pick up towels but to "shed" my own tears.
oh how i wish i lived back home-
ONLY those who have NO family around can completely understand...year after year. There is no house, car, private schools or anything can fill in that "empty" hole of missing "family". It tears my heart out as I see my son and dad interact knowing it's only for a couple of days- so much he could teach him and show him. So much my kids are missing not being by grandparents-
If you live by family...hug them tighter and realize that you are blessed-
p.s. thank you, mom and dad, for being there for us...all the support and love you have shown us especially during these pass couple of months! we had a blast this weekend!!
