I am only a phone call away.

Saying Goodbye To My Family As I Move Away
youtube.com

In a week I will be leaving to take on a new journey. I will be moving three states away, 594 miles without my family. For the last three years I have basically lived away from home, but that was only four hours. This is new. This is different. This is hard.

I am a family person. I always have been. I cried when they left me at college. I cried when I moved into my apartment. And I know in a week I am going to be a mess. But before I go, there are some things I want my family to know.

1. To My Sister

Even when we are old with our own families and our own lives, know that you will always have me for anything.

2. To My Grandparents

I will forever be grateful for everything that you help instilled into me. I don't believe that I could have made it to this point in my life, without your constant encouragement, love and support. Thank you for being who I needed you to be growing up.

3. To My Best Friend

For years you have wiped away my tears, greeted me with joy as I entered the house, and have been an amazing companion. Keep my family company, and keep being a great dog.

5. To My Mom

For 22 years you have been my best friend, my number one supporter, and "my person." I will forever be your little girl, no matter how far I travel to. Know that you can always call me and I will never be too busy for you. I could never thank you enough for everything you have done for me.
