Been Thinking of You

Feeling a little melancholy and missing my estranged daughter something fierce today. I always seem to gravitate to these types of images when I think of her. Girls with big eyes and long hair. I'll then color the image with my daughter's coloring. 
It would be nice to at least know what I did. I comfort myself with the memory of her, while getting ready for bed, asking me, "Mom, what did Aunt Lilly mean when she said good parents have bad kids and bad parents have good kids all the time?" I answered her truthfully. She was 16 at the time. We kissed and said good night. Then she snuck out her bedroom and didn't come back until the next day late in the afternoon. :\ Made me so sorry to have acted as I did with my mother when I was her age. By comparison... I was tame! lol
Anyway, here's the card my heartbroken soul came up with tonight:
