I don't know about all of you but most of my friends are friends that I have had from childhood. My one new friend I have added to my circle is moving next week. I am so sad. We "clicked" in so many ways and share so many of the same kind of past experiences. She is moving to Florida and at least for a year, won't be far from my father. However, we don't get down there that much so I am afraid that distance, like it often does, will kill the friendship.

I am really happy for her as she is moving back to her family. However, I am being a baby and have cried so much this week because she is leaving. I feel so guilty!!

I'm sorry. Unfortunately, I know all too well how this feels. I need a space on my "friendship application" for their 5 year plan. Everyone seems to move away!

Nora, sorry your friend is moving away. I have made "new" friends through my adult years..... I am acquainted with old classmates, but don't see them regularly or anything. I'm all about that "seasons and reasons" saying.....

friends? what are those??

I don't have any 'growing up' or longtime friends offline. Well, except one, there was quite a few years we were out of contact but reconnected on FB. Family friends type thing. I haven't actually seen her in person though since I was 14 after my father died and we went to see them. If I remember right.

I have made many friends through the years and am reminded of this especially around the holidays when I'm hardly ever home because this group or that group of my friends and I get together. Once you have families it's hard to see everyone all the time but friendships remain. My best friend Jennifer moved to Colorado about twelve years ago and I was devastated but we make it work and still are very close.

I'm sorry your friend is moving away.

I'm not close with any of my childhood friends anymore. Unless my dh counts. I've known him since I was 16. My friends change as life changes.

I'm sorry Nora. You still have Skype and Facebook, which I know isn't the same but it will help.

I just had lunch with her today to say my final good by. We both cried. She even said that she wasn't even excited to move anymore because she doesn't have as good a circle of friends in FL even though she grew up there. I will miss her.

Hugs! Having moved back
closer to my hometime friends where I grew up, my left behind friends are still my closest! We make the most of the get togethers when possible.
