I just needed "a" shoulder to cry on today. My best friend of the last
three years is moving out of state, and today we had to say our
goodbyes. I was a mess, yes, I cried! We have shared a lot! Our kids
played together, we worked at the same store, and she was the one who
introduced me to scrapbooking and we got together a lot and scrapped!!!
I have always told her that its all HER fault that I am addicted..LOL
I am hoping we can get together again sometime and scrap again, but
she is 6 hours away.
I will miss her daily friendship so much! *sigh*
Thanks for listening!
Ahhhh Linda... I hope she has internet, because you 2 can still have daily
contact. I have a good friend that lives in Pennsylvania and we talk daily.
Maybe she can even join us here RCS and you two can challenge each other
with the challenges.
I know how that feels!!! Here is my shoulder and a kleenex. Just remember,
6 hours is doable, especially if there is an LSS about half way in the
middle and hopefully you can also be internet buddies!!!
Oh Linda I'm so sorry to hear this. Its not easy when your best friend
moves. I moved away from my best friend about 5 years ago. She lives in Ohio
and I live here in Florida. I moved because I was getting married :) We
still talk and she comes to visit during the summers. :)
Again I'm really sorry and I know how much it hurts!! Just know we are here
if you need to talk.
That's always hard. At least with today's technology she is a phonecall or
keyboard keys away. Though it's not the same.
One of my best friends and I keep in touch that way. She was just down with
the kids two weeks ago. It was hard to see her leave again....
Linda, just think how good it will be to see her again! That's something
to look forward to. Hang on to good friends, they don't come by so often.
The one good thing of true good friends are that even if you don't see them
for a while, when you get together again, it's almost as if you've never
been apart. Hang in there Linda!
I'm sorry! I know JUST how you feel. About 6 years ago, my two best friends
moved away within two weeks! I thought I would die for awhile, it was so
You'll always miss her, but things will get better with time.
I will be going through that come January as my girlfriends husband will be
finishing school and they will be off to Alberta somewhere to astor a
church. My heart already hurts when I think about it! I just have to
treasure the time we have left! Prayers go out to you! Barb:o)
I can empathize with you, one of my best friends moved 2 yrs ago to
Mississipi, but she comes to visit and we both have Sprint so calls are
free. And now my other best friend is moving about an hour away. She'll
have to get Sprint too! You'll need to communicate somehow, six hours is
doable for a long weekend. Hilda
thanks for the Kleenex M-C!
...I sure needed it Friday!
Yeah, 6 hours isn't too far and we have already talked about meeting
halfway somewhere near Fort Wayne, Indiana, and getting a motel for a
night and just scrapping, or, like you said, find a LSS available to
go to! We have another mutual friend and we are starting to plan
something maybe before school starts! :-) Yippee!
I've had the same best friend for 25 years. Wow. I feel old when I say
that. We've been friends since 5th grade or before. I don't get to see her
that much. We are both busy all the time with family and kids. We keep
saying we are going to get together. I'm really glad she has internet at
work now. I keep in touch with her a log more. We live about 2 hours
apart. I do miss living closer. Sometimes it feels like we are fading
away. I don't know how to make it better either. I'm trying now to plan a
weekend together for late this summer with them. I'm hoping it works outs.
Shannon, I hope that you can get together with your friend! I have
another gal I met when I was 19, and she moved to Texas years ago. We
still keep in touch by email, and an occasional phone call. When she
does come back home we "do lunch" and yack! Its like we were never
apart sometimes. Good friends are hard to find!
I was up there for three days - about thirteen years ago. Spent the entire
time from opening to closing at the Allen County Public Library. They have
the biggest genealogy department in Indiana and the Midwest.
I would be hard pressed to decide between my two loves - scrapbooking and
genealogy if I ever get that way again. At least the library would close
before a scrapbook store and I could spend the rest of the evening there
