Don't Forget Me

 As I was preparing to move, I had worries that of course came up, one of which was this:
The scariest thing about distance
 I am familiar with this feeling because I had pangs of it when Tim PCSed to Hawaii in October 2011. Over the years, the feeling subsided because I became more and more confident in our relationship's ability to withstand the thousands of miles of distance between us. And now, we're mere months away from kissing the distance goodbye. 

But I was now having this feeling in regards to family and friends. I am going to be a bit far away and therefore unable to attend most family and friend events. I will inevitably miss get togethers, holidays, births, birthdays and celebrations.

Will I be missed by my loved ones? There's no doubt in my mind that I will be, especially at first. But will I eventually just be forgotten? That's a scary thought and something I hope I won't have to face. While it is a possibility, I believe the relationships I have built are strong enough to withstand my move.


  1. I have moved so much in my life. I have found that it is certainly a challenge to keep in touch with everyone and naturally some friendships do fade as time passes, but they are always replaced with new ones. Family is always family and for me at least, my bond with them got even stronger when I moved away. It gives you a whole new perspective and when you see them you don't take a second of it for granted. And the best part of moving away is that you feel like a celebrity every time you visit home! lol.

  2. Of course you won't be forgotten! Good luck in Chicago! So happy for you!!!

  3. it's hard to move away from family but you will never be forgotten!

  5. I'm going through the same thing Jackie! I've been apart from my husband for so long - and now when he returns, I'm going to have to say goodbye to a lot of things!
