I've been dreading this day. The day my sister, Kim, moves away. We've never lived apart with the exception of our college years and even then, we saw each other at least once a month. Up to this point, our entire family has lived within a one mile radius of each other.
Today, she and my three nephews are moving to Georgia.
9 and a half hours away.
My heart is sad for me and our family. But, it's also happy for them. It's been a long, hard year. Separation. Divorce. Adjustment. Hard. But, in the midst of all of that heartache, she was blessed to find true love. And her boys are crazy about him, too. And so, they set off to begin a new life with all kinds of happiness in Georgia. And that makes me very very happy.
We had a family BBQ last night to send them off.
Our kids have been raised more like siblings than cousins. Kim and I were pregnant with my 3rd and her 2nd at the same time...delivered just 9 days apart. That was so much fun. We are going to miss cousin time...
Kim and Tim and boys...wishing you love, peace, and a lifetime of happiness. Even though you are miles away...you will always be right here in my heart. ♥
