But someday the time will come to say goodbye, and by that time will you really be ready to let them go without guilt or words unsaid. Love ur parent

    • It's going to be okay. This is the order of life. You'll start a family and be consumed by your kids. One day your children will be sad when Grandma and Grandpa are gone and you'll focus your energy in comforting them which in turn will be comforting to you.
