I have never taken friendship lightly.
There is a very good chance that if you were my friend twenty years ago, you’re still my friend now, and an even better chance if that you’re my friend now, you will be my friend twenty years from today. If you are someone who matters to me, you can live on any continent on planet earth and I’ll find a way to stay in touch. I may even find a way to pay you a visit.
This weekend, I am relocating my family from New Jersey to an island on the North Carolina coast. Much of the past month, my children and I have been on what I’ve referred to as the “goodbye tour.” There have been play dates and farewell parties and girls nights out for me, with my “besties.” I’ve wanted my children and myself to have that one last meet up with those who matter to us.
I also want my children to know that while these are goodbyes, they are only “goodbyes for now.” Those who matter to us will always be our friends, no matter where we live.
Today, I am honored to be featured on Laura’s blog, Mommy Miracles, discussing why I’ll never say “goodbye” to my true friends, even though I am moving 600 miles away from many of them.
Won’t you join me there?
