Lately it has been hitting me very hard that my friends are spreading out. Some of them very far, by the way! And also with some changes I hope happen in my life, some that I have had with me won't be for long. For a person who never expected to have close girlfriends, I've ended up being very lucky. The women who have touched my life have left lasting marks on my heart that I treasure.
Technology being what it is, we are very lucky these days. But still, it's hard. I have a very difficult time coping with not being able to be present to give help and just enjoy life with these people I love so much.
Niki and I were supposed to live together and live our lives in sync.
S is about to have a baby in Boston and I won't be there.
T is moving to Seattle and I won't be there to help her decorate her first-ever home.
I don't get to have coffee with Katie every morning now and catch up on yesterday.
Amanda started a new job and I didn't get to take her out for a beer to celebrate.
Katelyn had a baby in Germany!It's been so long since I've seen her I can't even think about it.Annie is headed back to Croatia Friday and I probably won't get to talk to her for months.
And my AC- good heavens, what would I even DO without her?
It's amazing to get to talk to them so often and share pictures. Thank goodness for cell phones, texting and digital photos! And I'm an avid mailer of packages and cards. But it still hurts to not be right there, next to them.
So where is your heart? And what tricks do you use to stay close it all of its pieces?
