Loss for Words?

I saved this photo on the 4th with the intention of posting it when I could think of adequate words to accompany it.
After several days of thinking, I decided the adequate words were not coming, and decided to post the photo anyway.



We are moving in 2 1/2 weeks. I had a great 4th, but spent a significant amount of time while at Shell's languidly mourning the future lost spent daily at her house. I am missing the opportunity of knowing the small daily events and details of her house, her life, her routine, her mannerisms...Her everything that I want to emulate and feels so safe and home to be in the presence of...

I know my stream.of.consciousness ramblings don't make the most sense, but it's the best way i know how to describe the feelings I have right now.

Now I just need to snap out of my preemptive saddness and make something out of these last days!

p.s. as soon as the photo loaded bella started chanting: "Mommy-Shell! mommy-Shell!"

I can tell you from experience that living too far away from your best friend-sister (Denise) has always been a trial. When we are together, it is bliss, entertaining, spiritually invigorating, tender, silly, supportive, happy. When it is time to leave I think I simply cannot live with the distance between us. Thank heavens for the eternitys.
I am a happy mother to see the love between you.

Darling photo!

My heart aches for you. For Michelle.

and Eva as well! "Jessie-Mommy! Jessie-Mommy!" I am engulfed in the pre-emptive sadness, too, and Mom's comment isn't helping too much...

p.s. this just may be the first time I've known you to be at a loss for words...

i'm at a loss for words in commenting...what a wonderful sister-friendship the two of you have. proximity is so wonderful, but your reunions will be so sweet.

Preemptive sadness is not a good thing. I don't know what to tell you except that I feel for you and wouldn't wish this upon you two. Of course, I can't help but think how marvelous the good mail, blogging, correspondence, and visits will be for you both.

Enjoy your last 2 weeks. It's hard having sisters live far away, I feel like I am a pro at it. But your mom is right the reunions are so sweet!
