The 10 day visit was amazing but oh, how it hurt to see them leave. I remind myself that I will see them again soon and when my heart is breaking, as it is now, I pray for those who have lost loved ones that they will not see again while on earth.
Just 10 short days ago, the anticipation was barely containable! We had lots of fun, made lots of memories and enjoyed every minute of our time together.
I’m thankful they have a good weather day for traveling and if you are so inclined, a prayer or two for safe travels for them would be appreciate. And maybe a prayer that Granny can stop crying and get this house put back together.
Oh, Judy—isn’t that heart throbbing, gut wrenching feeling as they go down the driveway the worst ever. Dear heart, whatever you do, don’t sit there crying. Get busy, busy…it helps. Also, when they get home they will call, and that will make you feel better too. Give yourself a few days to recover. I go through this every time our kids ( and they are in their fifties, and the grown grand kids visit). I gotta say, it isn’t going to ever change. I used to think it would. The sad, good bye feeling just subsides…(hugs)
OH, I can’t imagine! Guess that’s kinda how my mom felt when my brother left for Calif. Altho they never saw them as often as you guys see each other. I was always mad that my brother never made more of an effort to come back now and then. And then again my two boys and only granddaughter live very nearby and I hardly ever see them. Go figure. Hope the ache goes away soon.
I can’t believe it’s been ten days already, and it wasn’t even my family. I can only imagine how quickly it passed for you! I’m so glad you had these ten days to make memories with all of them. I look forward to hearing an update on the hexagon quilt, or whatever was worked on this visit.
Hugs sent your way and prayers sent their’s.
I’m so glad you had such a wonderful visit with them. You will hold those memories dear for a long time! Prayers for their drive home.

Oh I so understand. I cried just looking at your picture, know how you were feeling as you took it. Prayers for their safety and for you my friend,

Looking at their car pulling away, I cried because I could so feel your pain. It’s such a happy time when they come and so sad when they go. Treasure the memories you’ve made and anticipate the next time you’ll see them and, above all, keep busy. Hugs????

Boy that 10 days went fast . I’m sorry they had to leave so soon. I can’t imagine the sadness you are having. I’m so blessed to have been able to buy the house next door to my DD and Dgd last year. It is wonderful just like I remembered when I was a child and lived across the street from my own grandparents. Wish things were different for you Judy. Maybe someday you will all live close again.
