The Bouquet of Talent Linky Party #71

Welcome to the party, friends!  Thank you so much for joining us this week.  I am scrambling to get the party up in time.  We have had a very emotional week around my house.  My son took a job 1,500 miles away, and I've had one sleepless, teary week!  I kept it together until the last goodbye Thursday morning.  Well, in front of him anyway!  You always know that day is coming, but it doesn't make it any easier.  I keep telling myself  now I have my own craft room, but I don't think I can change it just yet.   LOL   This would also be the week I had a teacher workshop all day today.   So I apologize for not doing a separate post for the features this week!

Hi Kathy, good luck with dealing with your son moving away! You are making me cry now! I sounds like you are so busy and I just want to say thank you for hosting this party each week. All the best to you and have a good week. Julie

How wonderful that your son got a job. :) But, my heart hurts with yours that it's 1500 miles away. I know we play life's scenarios in our heads and think we'll be all good. Funny how our emotions rise to the surface when we least expect it. Lean in hard this week on the ONE who loves you most. [hugs]

I know your heart is aching now but you'll probably "talk" more through Skype and email than ever before. Lucky he found something that he'll enjoy. Good jobs are hard to find for some. My son has been looking for a while.

Happy New Year Kathy, thank you for hosting The Bouquet of Talent Linky Party. Love joining in. Glad your son got the job but it is so tough to not see (adult children) them easily when their lives/jobs change. Deep breath.

Joy said...

Kathy, I know you are missing your son! {hugs!}

Thank you for the party!

Love, Joy

Kathy, I can totally relate to you! Our daughter lived 1,200 miles away for years and a year and a half ago her husband took a job out in Washington State that's 2,100 miles away! We're all doing ok, just a lot of flights back and forth. Time does help but we still miss them a lot.

Hope you have a better week.

Kathy, Thank you so much for featuring my Chocolate Lava Cakes! My heart aches for you about your son moving so far away...I am sure it is bittersweet, though, with being happy for him finding a great job, but sad it's so far away.

Hi Kathy,
I hope that you get used to not having your son around soon, we never stop loving them, but we do get kinda used to them being away.
Thanks for the party.
I hope that you have a fantastic day and week ahead(not to sad).
Love and best wishes.

Kathy, I can so totally relate to how you are feeling - my son's job took him across the country and I know all too well how emotionally difficult it is. You are in my thoughts, without question! Thank you for hosting the party in the midst of all this! Sending you warm and happy thoughts! Hugs!

Unknown said...

Totally understand!! All three of my children live far from me, I miss them so much. Thank goodness for technology: Facetime, group texts etc!! We talk daily in some form;))

Sending extra hugs this week!!


Thank you so much for hosting sweet lady. Have a nice week ahead.
