Sad Times

Monday, April 18, 2011

It has been a rough weekend.

I traveled to Ft Wayne this weekend to help my daughter and her family pack and get ready to move to South Dakota. My son in law has an education opportunity there that is wonderful for him and them and will make for a great future. It is just bittersweet as they will be far away and not within a 3-hr drive as they have been. The grandbabies will be growing- growing and I will miss their special times. Fortunately there is Skype, but somehow it just doesn't feel the same.

Compounded with that is the ending of my relationship with Robert. It is interesting how these things come at the same time. I don't think it is random, but certainly it has me in a rather melancholy state.

I may be quiet for a while, but I am still here, just listening and being quiet.

Love to all,

    I hope you're still hanging around and taking care of yourself! I know this is a difficult time in your life, but please stop looking at "endings" and start looking at "beginnings" - time for you to focus more on yourself and less on the kids and relationship. The best relationship you can have is with YOURSELF!! (words of experience; I know how much it hurts to go through this)

    I'm so sorry Jill. I guess we have a lot of catching up to do when we get together in a few weeks. Call me if you need to talk before. I'm just a short drive away...

    Ahh, Jill, I can sense your pain! The three hours from Lubbock to Abilene to see Clayton and Kinley seem so short compared to what you are about to face! It seems pretty silly to complain now, knowing it could be so much more difficult! Do you have an iPhone4? I got one (well, it was rather given to me, really) and the best thing about it was the face time you can have. Skype is free, though, and on a bigger screen. Oh, that just isn't the same, is it? I'm really feeling bad for you!

    Ahh, and Robert... I wondered way back when he canceled on your wonderful trip you had planned. I sure don't know the details, but part of me thinks you have so much better in store than frequent disappointments...

    Love you, my friend! I miss our close communication we have had in the past! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm so sorry (Jill). That's an awful lot to go through on top of how things tend to be at work too. Praying for your comfort. Take care of you.

    I understand your ache at being away from your grandbabies and children. We moms/grandmoms love being able to be there for those we cherish. Treasure and savour all the memories.
    I'm thinking of you...holding out my hand...and listening.
    You're not alone Jillikins!
