Hi, How many of you feel like me-- I had my grandchildren all the time for their first 8 years and then my son and family emigrated to Australia. Luckily we have recently seen them in UK for the first time in 7 years! They have returned to Australia but I am feeling the heartbreak of their first leaving all over again and can't stop being tearful . Our now grown up grandchildren have been a great joy and we re lived some moments of the times we had together when they were young. I re live the times gone by every day . They were very emotional and upset to leave us again but have now settled back to their life in Australia but I am still in tears every where I go and although such happy memories I am getting upset to go to the places without them!
I hope I don't sound selfish because I truly want them to be happy I love them dearly but I am having moments of wishing they had never gone to Australia and wishing I had had the chance to watch them grow into the beautiful people they are , I miss them so so much. We can't travel to see them due to ill health and just hope they will come back again one day. Will this terrible feeling pass? kind regards to all you grandparent s that are feeling a similar way .
