The Weight of Distance

You might remember when my best friends moved a few months ago. K left in March and S left in May. Those ladies were like appendages to me and I haven't been the same with them gone. Especially this week. Last Monday, K gave birth to her second baby, a beautiful girl. If it weren't for the fact that I was moving out of our condo seven days later, there is a very good chance I would've been on an airplane out of town. I was anxious to see K, and the new baby. And who was going to watch the older daughter, and cook dinners and help clean the house when K's mom left a few days after the baby was born? Seeing just pictures over the internet instead of actually holding that new baby and seeing my friend? Really hard. Yesterday, S told me that she's pregnant with #3! She is wonder woman. #1 turned 2 just a couple of months ago, #2 is barely 9 months old, and yes - this was a planned baby. Wow. And to be able to tell her I'm excited for her and mail her a YEAH! card is not the same as a big hug. That I am apart, forever, from my best friends is setting in. And breaking my heart all over again.

I totally understand. My best friends are 12 hours and 2 hours away, and it is so hard missing them (especially when big things happen). It's also hard to think of our kids not growing up together (in the same place, seeing each other often).

Sometimes a phone call or a letter just isn't enough.
