Valerie,
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog. I have been enjoying my browse through yours tonight! God bless!

First. You know I'm a Croce fan.

Now to the important stuff. It won't be long Val. Your little princess will be a woman you are proud of. You will talk on the phone as much as I talk to my parents now. You will have some little dukes and dutchesses running around too.

Now your relationship has changed. But is no less important. She won't ever quit needing you. Even if it is just for company.

I love you Val. Enjoy this because you can.

I thought I had some words of wisdom until I read the above comment...so I'll just say 'ditto' what 'bigwhitehat' says!

(((Big Hugs)))

I've been a Jim Croce fan since college. This is a great song. I'm sorry for your pain, but it is because of the size of the gift you're beginning to relinquish. Maybe God's saying, "Well done, Valerie."

One of the earlier songs I learned to play on the piano, and even then at that young age, I understood the importance of those lyrics.

I'm crying with you Val. I could send my son to live with you though.

A poignant tune, especially in light of Croce's early death. Look at it this way, Valerie: you and your daughters have spent together what to Croce and his son has been an "eternity" apart.

NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY
---Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

There is a saying that we only borrow our sons but we keep our daughters for ever...

You can, like Mary, ponder it all in your heart...

This post made me cry as it is something I need to face up to soon too....

Hi Stephanie - Welcome to my blog! I look forward to getting to know you better!

BWH - I figured you'd be a Croce fam. Your words are very wise, my friend. But please don't make me a grandma so quickly - as much as I'd love grandkids, I hope and pray that it will be a few years before I am blessed with them!

Ukok - Hugs to you, too, my friend!

Julana - How I pray to hear those words some day when I meet my Maker!

Stacy - Send him here whenever you get tired of him, OK?

Kevin - Beautiful and poignant, as always. . .

Paula - I've been missing you a lot, lately.

Barbara - I've been thinking a lot about Mary lately, and asking for her help as I go through this transition.

Mrs. D - Aw, I'm sorry!!!
