I Realized Time Is Going So Fast.

I'm almost 34 years old.  I've lived nearly 1000 miles away from my immediate family for close to 12 years now.  I just got home from a one-week road trip to visit them.  Since I've gotten home, I've been really sad and even cried some.  I think the visit showed me just how much time has passed and how everyone is getting older.  I see my family several times a year, so I don't know exactly why I'm being affected so much by this visit.  I remember how my mom and grandmother would cry when we would have to say goodbye on visits when I was a kid.  I never understood how they felt until now.

I understand how you feel. I live over 1000 miles away from my family for almost 23 years now. It's getting more difficult as I get older and realize how much I need them and how they need me. I was just with them two weeks in June and now I'm back home and I feel so empty. I have been feeling this emptiness for many years now, I guess about 3 years. I really don't know what the future holds but I do feel in my heart that I do need my family in my life a lot more than I used to. God guide me to where I need to be. I just want to be happy and I don't see my life being happy without them..

There is nothing greater than what is yours . No matter how small it might be . I am planning to get back home with a different mind set . Managing the little .
