Harder and Harder To Breathe

LittleBird has her last playdate tomorrow with her bestest friend in the whole wide world. They are leaving to visit their family in Tokyo, and we will not see them again before we move. They come over every Thursday, and this is our last one.

I happened to run into my friend at the grocery store this afternoon. I am never at the grocery store, but we happened to meet up. It was like a movie. Our girls saw each other, squealed with delight, ran across the front of the store and hugged each other. They held hands and danced around our shopping carts the entire time we shopped. It was all I could do to keep from sobbing.

The closer we get to our move date, the harder this is becoming. Tomorrow is going to be just horrible. I can't even breathe just thinking about it. It makes my heart hurt.

I had to change schools six times because my family moved so many times. The first second time was the hardest because my best friend lived down the street. We cried for WEEKS! But every summer we would visit each other (a week at her house, a week at mine). Those are the best memories for me.

Hopefully your daughter and her friend will be able to stay in touch and keep their friendship strong.

Hang in there! I know moving sucks! :)

The nice thing about life is that you never know what is around the next corner. Life is about to take you (and your daughter) places you may never have dreamed of.

But my heart goes out to your whole family. It is difficult to uproot and go to a new place with new people and new challenges. Allow yourself to grieve the end of this phase so you can move on to the next.


Peace - D

Oy vey. I'm so sorry for you yet so very happy for myself. (That's bad, huh?)

I don't think saying goodbye to what we know is ever a happy thing. I hope Little Bird can look back on her grocery store dancing with fondness once next week arrives.

And I hope you know that I'm here for you, sister. I may not be next door, but I'll do whatever I can! Got that?

I know how you feel, we have to go through this every couple of years. I'm sorry for you and your little girl, and I hope the pain soon gives way to excitement and many new friends.

Oh, sweetie. I'm so sorry. I don't have the words because I haven't gone through what you and Little Bird are experiencing, but I'm thinking about you guys and sending good thoughts westward!

See you soon!

Thank you so much for you support, ladies. It has been a hard, hard day. I have kept my headache at bay, but I am giving in and going to bed. Tomorrow is another day, right?

Thanks for coming to my blog! I LOVE that you have a nice blog and a nasty blog! I've been thinking of doing it for so long that I finally started my nasty venting blog today. Maybe someday you'll tell me the name of your nice blog...and then I'll give you the name of my nasty one!
