Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

My soon-to-be college grads coming down to the wire:

I know I sound like a broken record,
but where has the time gone?

Hold your babies tight.
Forever and forever.
Life is precious and capricious.
And sometimes too short.
Today I ask you to send special love and prayers
to my Virginia Blister Ann Marie.
As she says a final goodbye to her teenaged daughter.
Hold your babies tight.
And, please, everyone wear a seat belt.

I'm so very sorry to hear about your friend's daughter. Life is shorter than we want it to be sometimes.

I'm doing what I can to get mine out of the house. It seems that they're all late bloomer. And that mental illness prolongs the stay at home. I'd like an empty nest now, please.

It is absolutely heartbreaking, and we can't fix it.

Hug those babies!
