{ That old feeling }

Halloween isn't even over yet and I'm already starting to feel that old feeling of sadness that I won't be with my 'kids' for the holidays. It's a tough time of year for me. I have one dear daughter who moved her family to the east coast about 6 years ago. When they left I had three sweet grand-babies. Since they've been there, they have added two more. Two sweet little girls that I have never seen. Pictures just don't replace the feel of their soft little bodies and the smell of their hair and skin. It's difficult to feel attached to one's that you have never had any physical contact with. Our schedules and finances aren't conducive to cross-country visits, and it breaks my heart. 

Well, enough of the 'poor me' drivel. I really just wanted to share the most recent photos of my kids. Taken in May of this year.

Hug your babies if they're near!!


  1. Hi Lori, :) What a sweet family you have!!!! :) So cute this pic is. Hehe

  2. Oh Lori- Your family is so beautiful! How hard the years must be on you, not being able to hug and rock those little ones.
    My sons are 29 and 25, we still have no grandchildren. I want them so bad. All my friends have had them for some time now.
    I have adopted grandchildren to rock and buy things for and do things with. Kids who don't have grandparents around here or don't have time to spend with them.
    I know it's not the same as your own- but those little arms around the neck sure feel good.
    I will be praying for a way for you to get to the coast so you can see them.
    Hugs- Tete
