Heart break one cell at a time...

Being a parent can be painful...watching your child struggle, tears falling makes your heart break one cell at a time...

Encouraging a child to move toward their future, even when it is hard...makes your heart break one cell at a time..

Knowing that your arms aren't big enough to hug away the homesickness...the loneliness, makes your heart break one cell at a time.

The miles seem unending, days crawling by...reassurances over the phone that things will get better, that time will pass quickly makes your heart break one cell at a time.

The nest seems emptier, the rooms quieter, the forward movement making your heart break one cell at a time.

Being a parent can be painful...the right decisions, tears being wiped virtually from a crying child's eyes...

makes your heart break one cell at a time...

  1. The thought of Unique going away to college scares the crap out of me. I cant imagine how it feels for the both of you right now. You're both blessed to have such a wonderful relationship and love for one another. Hugs! <3

  2. I remember that bittersweet heartache when my daughter went to college 1900 miles away. It's like a small death. :-( I decided I would just stay busy. I enrolled in a quilting class and joined a gym. Applying my mind to other things was very helpful. And college is not forever! There are breaks, and it does end at some point. But, I hear you. It's a huge transition.
