Is it true that long-distance relationships can work out?


Because I'm about to find out. My 22 year old baby is moving to Arizona.Sorry I've not been a good blogger since we've come back from vacation. We ended up going from Kentucky, to Nashville, down to Tallahassee, across the state to Jacksonville, and then up to Nashville, and finally back to Kentucky. Total mileage on this trip was 1808 miles!

In between recuping from the trip, I've heard from the Legal Adult. He's leaving. He went to Phoenix about 4 years ago and now he's going back. It's just hard to let them go sometimes. I'm driving him to the Louisville Airport tomorrow, and he connects in Philly. Then, straight through to Phoenix.

I know it's time. He kinda followed me up here from Tennessee and always loved it out west. Think of me tomorrow....I'll most likely be sad.

I will think of you tomorrow. I hope it is a positive change for him- but I'm sad for you. Much mama-love going your way!

Everything will be fine. Just leave it in the hands of the Lord and he will take care of everything. I know about long distance relationships, as you know. The love does travel over the miles. Keep in touch at least weekly. I'll remember both of you in my prayers.

Awww. It's hard, I know. But you know what? Sometimes long-distance relationships are the best kind.

Letting them stretch their wings is the hardest part of parenting! Let me know if you come to Phx to visit him! I'll sweep you off to do a quick shop hop! I miss my oldest. SHe is in the AF in MS...a LONG way from AZ for sure...we have just swapped kiddos...Yours came west..and mine went east!

Hope you are doing better by now. I know how you are feeling, but the distance between my oldest and me is only from here to Marianna. So it's not so bad.

Hope you enjoyed your trip!
