- Nora, from Brothers and Sisters
Once again, watching one of my favorite TV shows has turned into a time for reflection for me. This quote hit a chord for me today. I am so far away from my family and loved ones. They are going through so much, each one of them. All I can do is a send a card, make a phone call. My eyes burn with tears as I think about how wonderful it would be to hug them, see them, support them, and love them in person.
I miss them dearly. I hope they know how much they are loved, thought of and held from afar. I hope they know how much their daughter, friend, niece, and sister misses them. My heart aches to be close to them again.
A few of my favorite people...
This was one of my favorite weeks with my family. It was one month after my first miscarriage and I needed them dearly. I always enjoy every second I get to spend with my mom and sister.
This is my dear friend, Renee. Not having her down the hall every day at work or up the road when I desperately need her has left a huge hole in my life that no one else could ever fill.
They are all still family, and that means I am not alone in my journey, and they are not alone in theirs. What a blessing to have them in my life, no matter how far away they may be. As I go to bed tonight, I will be thinking of them, and all of our family and friends who are so far away, and sending them hugs from afar.
