I was just devastated when my son told me they were moving to Indiana...was right around the same time they told me they were pregnant with their first child...turned out to be my sweet Cupcake, Kayden and also when my Dad's Alzheimer's really moved to a new level of severity. It was such a bittersweet time.
Eventually, when the kids move happened last May, I went with them to help out. While I still didn't like the fact that they were moving so far away (pouty face here) I took a real comfort is seeing their new home....knowing that it was in a beautiful area of Indiana, that they were on a great street full of super nice neighbors, that their new home and yard was lovely, warm, safe and that they were in love with it! It gave me peace in my heart to know where they'd be, to have pictures to look at, both on paper and in my mind...to picture where they'd spend so much of their time as a family. Their home is one filled with lots of love, constant laughter, a sweet baby crawling and cooing, a big fuzzy dog waggin his tail and a great guest room for me to come hang out in anytime I want.
I was missing them so much tonight....I'd started collecting scrapping items I thought I might want to use for a page like this, but picked a couple things up on the way home tonight and my missing them must poured into the layout....and it made me feel better when it was done :-)
Thanks for reading and thanks for looking, Maureen
