Elk, you made me think of my Mom, we only had 3 days with her at Christmas. The Time went by so quickly. I don't have kids but I know that feeling of leaving. Hope you have a beautiful New Year.

I don't have children but as I reached the age Mum was when I left home I began to understand the longing she was feeling. You express it so well.

As I near that stage of life, my heart aches and I don't think I will be able to handle saying good bye to my kids. It is a beautiful picture of her.

I'm sorry, so sad. Sometimes I wish it was like the "old days," when people pretty much stayed in the same place they were born and so did all their families.

sherri said...

I know that feeling. This one brought tears.
