5...4...3...2...1...

I haven't been here because...

it's the end of countdown week

They're leaving in a matter of days, the truck will be loaded on Monday

My house has been kissed by the pitter-patter of extra little feet

and

the laughter of extra little mouths

while momma and daddy pack up
their lives

to start a new one

My heart is bursting with

excitement for their journey

and

unshead tears for my journey

I'll be back when I can

I am sorry your friend is leaving. It is so hard. I had a very good friend who helped me so much during the first years of being a "triplet plus one" mommy and when she moved it was heartbreaking for us. We still talk often, but it so not the same as having her down the street! My prays are with you both at this time!

That is such a hard thing...I hope it goes as well as possible. :(

Enjoy the rest of your time!

Praying for your heart!

Hey, Shelly. I know this is difficult. I am reminding myself of when Betsy left. I thought I wouldn't be able to go on. Call when you need to. Sarah L.
