My son and his wife, after a dispute, moved out 3 years ago. They completely shut me out of their lives, including my 2 grandchildren, who lived with me since birth (they are now 20 & 15; Emily & Seth). Another granddaughter Ashley (17) lives near me, along with my son and daughter-in-law. They are a blessing and help me a lot. I love Ashley, but don't see her that much. She does drive me to dr. appointments when I ask, but there is not that grandmother/ granddaughter relationship that I had with Emily. I lost my only daughter years ago and when Emily came along it really helped with that ache I have from losing my daughter. I tried to connect with her on FB but early on she told me she was not allowed to answer any messages I sent her; so I gave up. I really should write a story about my daughter which pain in my heart is always there. I just want to say to all the mothers out there who are fortunate to have a daughter in their lives; be thankful for that blessing. I have 3 sons and they are just not the same as daughters. I think if my daughter had lived my life would be completely different, and I would be happy.
