One week ago this morning our beautiful daughter Alex, and her husband, Cole, left for San Diego, California.
By the time I see her again, it will have been a little over four weeks.
I've never gone four weeks without seeing one of my kids. And yet, this will probably be the shortest time between visits for quite a while.
Giving her a kiss just before they headed west.
I think I held it together pretty well . . . considering the sight of them driving out of our driveway felt as if a piece of my heart was being ripped from my chest.
I'm happy to report that they made it to California safe and sound and have moved into their brand new apartment!!
Since last Wednesday we have talked every single day. I've learned that FaceTime is a wonderful thing!
I've had the tour of their apartment and I've seen that beautiful smiling face and I know that she is so happy.
Thanks so much to each of you for your prayers and your kind words. I know many, many parents have kids who have moved far away. And I never realized just how difficult that is until it happened to me.
I will see her in three weeks and three days . . . but who's counting!!!
Blessings to each and every one of you my blogging friends!
