Broken Heart on a String by FairieGoodMother Broken Heart on a String by FairieGoodMother
This is to all the Mothers and Fathers who have felt the same pain.

My Heart is Broken or at least it feels that way. I feel a little empty inside and scared at the same time. My oldest daughter has started her journey into adult life hood. She has no ideal what she is facing as she has been under our wing for all these years. At her age I had already been married to her father and had started my own journey. I now know and feel everything that my mother must have felt when I started my own journey. IT HURTS!!!! It has been extremely painful process to let this Beautiful child go, but we must as every parent must do and just hope and pray that we have done the best job we knew how to do. I will miss seeing her smile everyday or when just comes slamming through the door after school and dropping everything on the floor. Oh, how I wish for those days again. It was just yesterday that she was in diapers. Where has the time gone????? I feel robbed that I didn't get more time with her. I now want to spend every second that I have left with my son before he too starts his journey. I just don't know how to bare this pain. I guess I have loved my children too much. Sorry to carry on but it helps to write it down it seems, I have already cried all the tears, but there will be more I am sure.

I love your manipulations, as well as so much of your other stuff. Even though I haven't had time to look through all the galleries yet. I understand that empty nest anxiety, and I know you'll be alright. You'll still see her; I know there is that much mutual love. Broken Heart on a String captures the emotion! Your love will weather the storm. I don't mean to make light of your feelings; never. I'm waiting for the Broken Heart to dance away from the strings that bind!

She does indeed look like a ghost. But considering the fact that shes holding a red heart, and has no color in herself, I think that's quite suiting. Gives me a sense of death.

This is so beautiful. I read your story and can so relate to how you felt at that time. The empty nest syndrome is serious. We, as mothers, spend almost every waking hour devoted to our children for 18 years and more and then and we're alone. It's a, 'law of nature'... an unwritten code that enables an adult child to be on their own. We, of course, did the same and so it goes. A year has passed since you created this beautiful work - I hope you have found some comfort in being on your own either through art, books, meeting new people, etc. My children are 28 and 33 but when I think back at the time they started to 'break away,' it was the most painful time of my life. The thing that kept me strong was knowing there were other women in the same situation having the same feelings. It was a life lesson and one that made me stronger as it will you. I'm glad I came by your page to find this lovely work and to get to know you better. My wish for you is that you're happy now and that you've moved on :hug:
