My daughter left two years ago to got to graduate school in Detroit and I live in Florida, I was heartbroken when she left. I also was happy for her. I was happy she was going to be staying with an aunt up there while attending school instead of going somewhere where there was no family or friends. We text ,talk on the phone and of course fly back and forth to see each other often so it hasn't been to bad. But part of that may be because I have my son living here with me and I don't feel so alone(I was widowed 6yrs ago). But he is moving to Maine this week to be with his girlfriend. and I am just a wreck . I cry a lot and feel so alone and think what am I gonna do without them near by? I don't have a lot of close friends or family near by. But I do work. go to Zumba classes, love to garden so that will help me ease the sadness. I have always been close to my kids, I knew this day was coming but you are never pepared for it. I am thankful there is facebook, texting and planes.
