I live 434 miles away from my parents. I moved away 3 years ago and I don’t know if we will ever live any closer to each other.
My daughter has seen my parents about five times in her life.
For me, this in unreal, because I lived almost my whole life with both sides of my entire family in the same town. In fact, of all my uncles, aunts, and cousins, there are two that lived on the West Coast and the rest of my entire family grew up together. Not only that, but I grew up seeing my second and third cousins every year. We would get together for every holiday and family event.
I dream of a time where Maggie can be as well-acquainted with my entire family, but I don’t know if it will ever come. Thankfully, social media has made the distance seem smaller, but we cherish the times that we are all together.
My parents were able to come visit us as soon as we moved into our new home and helped us clean our apartment and finish up some projects. Mostly, they just loved on Maggie and we delighted in their presence.
Looking forward to our next visit with them…
