snap it {far away}

These girls.
They are starting to get further and further away from me.
Growing up fast.
Becoming independent.
Not needing me as much.
I'm hoping once they do leave our nest they'll keep returning.
Wanting hugs and love just like they still do now.
The eldest is starting to not need hugs as much. It kills me.
Even though they are needing me less,
I am never, ever far away.

Linking up with Sarah over at Faith Hope & a whole lotta Love. You can join in every Wednesday.
