This was absolutely beautiful Chelsey. It seems like only yesterday I was a teenager but believe me it wasn't. Time flys fast and now I'm watching my Grandkids grow up and the years are still flying. You touched me with this one for sure and I remember the day I left to get married and how my Mom cried, just hating to let me go. Touching and you did a super job on this one. You got me in tears....
Love ya, Ann
Wonderful... Made me think of 16/20 years time when my daughter grows up and moves out. It made me think of what house I will be living in so many years from now, what our life will be like etc etc. Great stuff Chelsey! As Bill says stay true to your heart and your nature, it will get you far :)
Awww Chelz, you made me cry.... you've brought back the memories of when my daughter graduated high school and the time came to bring her to college. I drove up there with her and shopped for her new apartment with her and even helped her decorate it too. When the day came that I had to leave her there all alone, I cried like a baby all the way home. She called me right after I left, I was only at the corner, she said, while crying "Mom, I miss you and I love you" and I said "I am only around the corner, do you want me to come back?" she said "No mom, you have a long way to drive" so I said "I love you Jen, you know I'm always here" She comes home every chance she gets, it is only a 5 hour drive, but it seems like forever when its your child.... This is absolutely a beautiful write and gives many parents, that haven't experienced this yet, a feeling of what to look forward too. And its not easy at all when you love them so much........... and its not easy on you kids either. Very strong, heartfelt and beautiful Chelz. I love ya girl.
Aww so beautiful farewell! I imagine when I move out it will be sort of the same. I'll miss everyone probably more then they'll miss me...I love the ending. amazing write girl! you truly are talented. just stay young for as long as you can and don't move out too fast, unless they evict you. haha...keep up the good work!
