Going to Get My Heart

NYC July 4 081

What started out as a few day visit to NH with their Grandparents, has grown into a week.

When I had to say goodbye, I whispered in my daughter’s ear, “I feel like you are taking my heart with you”.

It was really hard even though it was the right thing to do.

I had some very important things here that needed to be taken care of so I was unable to go with them and my husband’s travel schedule changed significantly so the other end grew as well.

We were both unsure if they would make, but mostly were pretty sure that I wouldn’t make it.

With the things that are happening around here, the best place for them this week was with their Grandparents, but it was really hard.

Yesterday, Peanut called, she had a rough night and was ready to come home.

So, today I will drive halfway to NH to go get my heart.

And I am really glad.

Take care,

  1. Awwww…..I have my little heart with me for 19 more days…then she heads back to college! I can understand how you feel…completely. I’m so glad you get to be back with your sweet ones…and all will be well!
    Have a blessed rest of the summer.

  2. Wish I could say it gets easier…my daughter will be moving to Dallas soon and my heart is breaking. I guess its a “mom thing.”

  3. My heart doesn’t want to be with her Momma much anymore. I understand because it’s a part of life and growing up, but it hurts. There are times I just tell her, I need you. Thursday night I was glad that she was home with me. We watched, from our DVR episodes of Glee and Raising Hope and the first episode of Design Star. We were up till the wee morning but that’s ok, we could sleep in. 🙂

  4. Hello my friend! I hope that everything is ok and I am so glad that you are going to be with your girls again, how hard that must have been. I am thinking about you and I hope things will be back to normal.
