New Chapter

Dear Buddy...well, it's finally April. Which means that we will be moving from this house to our new home soon. As exciting as this is, I know that it hasn't been easy for you to think about either. You've told me a few times that you might cry when the day comes...and that's okay. I'm probably going to be crying with you. It's okay to grieve leaving a home you've come to love. It doesn't mean you are ungrateful to be going to a new place. It's evidence of the good we've found here.

I've decided, I'm going to be grateful that I got to raise you and the other kiddos for a few years in the home where I grew up! Not many people get that gift! We got to bring Artsy, Bear and Peanut home from the hospital here didn't we? You learned to ride a bike here. You have spent hours bouncing your basketball on the drive way and playing with Cindy's dogs next door!

There are so many memories of walks on Sunday evenings...we're going to make a lot more memories of Sunday evening walks when we move too!

I love that you are sentimental, Buddy. It shows your tender heart. So, I know this move may hurt for awhile. So, if you feel like crying when it hurts, maybe we'll cry together. And then let's be thankful for the good memories and all the ones we're going to make in our little white home on the hill. It's time for a new chapter.

I love you Bud.
