Vacation - Wishing It Could Have Been Longer

I'm always disappointed when a vacation comes to an end. Today, this feeling escalated to a whole new level.

 It was a stroke of luck that our son and daughter had the same spring break from high school and college this year.  It was so nice for our family to be all together this past week, but the time went by so quickly.

Children grow up too fast. From the day they are born, a parent's job is to raise them to be independent.   Knowing this didn't make it any easier to say goodbye to my daughter though, as the rest of us headed to a different gate than hers, for our connecting flights.

I can see the plane that is taking her back to college, parked across the tarmac from ours.  I am being told to power down my electronics.  Her cell phone is already off.  I miss her already.
