Brooklyn:

"Also, as the kids get older and their busy little schedules increase, we see them less and less. I had no idea that in the 2 1/2 years we lived close to them that this would happen. Daughter will go back to work and maybe, just maybe, we will get a glimpse of them driving down the block past our house OR see them on holidays.
They have their own lives."

True.

Thankfully, our younger daughter and family remain close to us emotionally and across town physically (45 minutes away). The other kids are in other states and we see them less frequently.

We celebrate our 53rd anniversary this year, so it's good we enjoy each other's company!

Peace.
