Seems I’m getting a little taste of my own medicine if you will. One of the things I’ve LOVED about our new place is that it came fully stocked with a “new best friend” for both me & my kids, and they live about 10-15 paces from our front door. I joke, but really, Lindsey was one of those people with whom I immediately felt like, “ah…i can just be the biggest dork that I am and i think that’s ok”. Or in normal people-speak: Easy to talk to & fun hang with. Then the kids, well she’s got two boys that are very close in age to my kids (the older two are a year apart, but you wouldn’t know it to see them play together), and my kids LOVE her kids. Grace in particular seems very fond of Luke (the older one).
So imagine my turmoil when they announced they will be following a “dream” to move to Charleston South Carolina. How dare they! Don’t they know I am in a vulnerable needy state right now & it’s just not fair (you think I’m joking don’t you?)?
Seriously though, while I’m super sad they’re leaving, I am excited for their journey & the adventure they are about to embark together as a family. And the silver lining is that Charleston is not that far from my parents house, so when we visit Oma & Opa, we’ll see about sneaking in some time with the Pells. So I will try to take my own advice & remember that we are to treasure our relationships & love deeply without restraint but to hold them loosely in order that we might be free to “scatter” with the Gospel. And hey….since they blog I’ll be able to keep tabs pretty easy.
