I just got an e-mail from my sweet daughter informing the family that in spite of our denial, she and her husband, Darin, are leaving Texas in less than 2 weeks. They are going to move to Pennsylvania where Darin will work in the family business. I could be mad at Darin for taking my baby away to a foreign place (I've never been there), but I love him too much to be angry. So, it's finally here and finally real. I am feeling so sorry for myself. I miss them already.
All the stamping and knitting in the world will not make this better. My son and his family, however, will make me able to tolerate it. My sweet grand daughters are going to have to talk to Nana and play with Nana a whole lot more. Andy and Stacie are going to have to put up with me twice as much! That will make it better.
By the way, the picture at the top is of Andy and Katy when they were about 2 and 3 years old.
The other thing that will help, will be making plans to visit them in the near future. They leave on the 13th, I'll start planning on the 14th. Too soon? Not for me.
I pray that Darin, Katy and Dillon will have a wonderful, fulfilling life in PA. I wish for them good health, prosperity and much, much happiness in everything they do. I also wish for them to remember their family in Texas who love them so very much. You can't get rid of us. You gave me a map of PA for Christmas!
