Dogwalk Musings: Always A Parent

I had been picked up and dropped off at airports by my parents so many times over the years I’ve lost count. One thing was always a constant though. The welling in our eyes upon seeing each other after periods of time, and the sadness of one more good bye. Though never spoken the thought was always with me, “Would there be another time?” So must be the thoughts of every parent, relative and friend of service people around the world as they go off to and hopefully return from - war. Perhaps the biggest service Prince Harry did for his country is bring home to so many immune from the emotions just how terribly heart wrenching it is for the families/Dogwalk Musings. More here

Question: Do you ever stop being a parent?
