Have you ever gone through a phase of life where it seems like life moves on without you? I am feeling that way lately. I know that most of it is because we moved, and therefore life in IL is moving on without us, as it should. It still makes me a little sad that my friends' lives are moving on, their children are growing up, without us. I also realize that we are growing, changing, making new friends here, without our old friends.
I wish I knew how to ensure that the girls and their IL friends, and me and mine, all remain friends despite the distance.
With the consideration of middle school for Diva, I wish for my old support group so that I could discuss it with them. I know there is the phone/facebook/email, but alas, my friends are busy and not able to chat with me about it. Wow! That sounded whiney, and I really do not mean it to.
Reacting to change is difficult....for all of us.
