Miss Dani has been a blessing in our life over the past year. She's made me laugh, made me cry, saved my 2-year old from tumbling down concrete steps (not once but twice), hunted me down after I sent the 4-year old to school with only one shoe, boosted my spirits when I was feeling really bad...and now she's moving.
I'm a little sad today. I stopped by their house to drop off an overnight bag filled with items that you need before all the boxes get unpacked (nothing fancy, but a roll of toilet paper sometimes comes in handy).
The house was almost empty. The Atlas Van was parked out front and although I was tempted to slash the tires in an effort to delay their departure...I didn't.
We stood looking at the empty nursery and I reminded her of what I tell Ryder...a house is just four walls. It's what you put on the inside that makes it your home. Danielle-I wish you and your sweet family the absolute best...Houston will treat you well. Always remember that I-45 runs both ways! I am going to feel lost without you some days ..and Lord knows Ryder will be lost without James. Not seeing you first thing in the morning three days a week is going to feel just plain empty. Your friendship has and will continue to be fulfilling to me, but God has set a path for you and it is time to continue down that road. Biggest Hugs ever sweet friend..I can't wait until December~
