Many people say that time heals everything. I beg to differ because it is truly hard to let go of our children whom we took care of. We surely want to see our children as often as possible, but we have to respect their independence no matter how much we miss them.

Mom of Two so right.  We have to balance that with leaving them to get on with their life and not seeming needy. Sometimes itís like walking on egg shells,  You sound like a lovely Mum to think that by the way x

Guineagirl, it sounds like you got hit with two difficult changes around the same time.  It's understandable to be sad and I'm sorry you're going through so much!  I go have periods where I love the freedom of being an empty nester and those when it makes me panic because I'm so worried about my daughter and son.  About your daughter, can you make a standing date once or twice a month?  If travel is difficult, you can try connecting over something like Rabbit which will let you watch shows together. 


I deal with my father's death by making a donation in his memory on holidays and on his birthday.  I pick charities that would have been important to him.  Sometimes I donate time and sometimes I donate money.  I also gussy up his tombstone and the surrounding area.  It sounds odd, but it helps me.

Iím sorry about your dad Quiet Abode, itís nice to speak to people who understand.  gussy Iíve never heard that before I think we call it comfort lol and yes I really do understand you.  I go to Mams grave well Dad is buried beneath Mam in the same grave probably every two to four weeks I get a lot of comfort from that too.  I chat to them too.  I see my daughter week Friday for the weekend.  I sometimes wonder if the changes were more spread out I would of coped better who knows.  My daughter hang outs on the phone she put that on it for me Iím so useless with phones but not iPads x

Thanks for the compliment, but I don't see myself that good. I try to learn with how my children react in the way I care for them. Being a parent is really hard because if we hold the bird so tightly then it might suffocate and if we hold it too loosely then it might fly away to never come back.

How was the weekend with your daughter, by the way?

Hi Mom of Two,


I think the fact you know these things means that you are aware and will make a great Mom.  I see daughter this Friday tea traffic permitting a three hour drive may turn into a five hour one otherwise.  I love the Saturday as Iím there and not coming home until Sunday so itís like all my worries go away because I know Iím near her.  I seem to do the opposite to my Mam bringing her up who knows my daughter has learned things from sheíll do the opposite to.  We do our best it is a tiring job being a Mam x

Hi,


How nice to remember me and ask.  I do like this forum as we can chat about how we feel without strange looks like we would get from people who donít understand.  I check in every day and read threads as a way of getting advice I suppose listening virtually lol.  My daughter is trying to find a better job and so rings every day to vent to me, which I donít mind but it is stressful to not feel guilty.  Guilt is a funny emotion. I means she will move about an extra hour from us when we visit so about four hours drive in good traffic.   I go on holiday this week with her so Iím looking forward to it although we have said work and certain subjects are banned.  I suppose Iíve felt better as Iíve had this break to look forward to.  So much grieving when they leave home x

Hello Guineagirl, I'm new here and reading a lot of the post and came across yours.  Hope you have a nice Holiday with your daughter! Sounds like to are still trying to adjust to her being off to college. It took me/us awhile to get there but we have finally gotten to a point where we are ok now. So hang in there and keep on moving on. Enjoy those visits when you can. Sounds like you will be ok.

Hello again Guineagirl. How was your holiday with your daughter? I'm sure you had a great time with her. My family had a vacation as well and that is why I wasn't here for a long time.

Hi MomOfTwo, Iím glad you had a lovely holiday itís very kind of you to remember.  We had a great time with her it feels better being three or us not two, probably the same as you feel too. Itís just more fun.   She visited last weekend, so the next visit is us to her or her to us on the 2 November she hasnít decided which, we let her decide. X  when will you be next together?

I'm glad that you can plan for you to be together.


As for us, it will be hard because my son's visit was brief. He has to go back to work. He surprised us because he wanted us to see his fiancee. It was good of him that he remembered us and let us see her before their marriage.
