Moving forward to 2011

Filed under: Family Stuff — January 2, 2011 @ 10:00 pm

I am glad to see 2010 end.

Another friend moved out of state. That makes 3 close friends in 3 years. Three too many. Another friend left her husband and the homeschool friends she had made over the years. She might as well have moved away too—no, at least my friends who moved away still chat with me. These were women who I chatted with, went to homeschool conferences with, had their kids and them to my home. They weren’t mere acquaintances and while we hadn’t known each other for decades we had connected. There is a large empty spot. It doesn’t help either that my oldest became a college freshman this fall too. One less very vocal person in our home left an empty spot too.

And a dear friend just learned she has cancer, and is in Stage IV. She’ll start chemo soon and my hopes and prayers are with this dear friend.

Does anyone know how broken hearted I am? This reminds me of my high school years when I moved cross-country and had to make all new friends. And then one by one I lost my friends, one a year.

Life is tough and I know I am tough too but I’d rather not be tested anymore. And so we move forward.
