There Truly Is No Place Like Home
As They Say...........
............home is where the heart is. Truly it is. My heart is with my husband and our three "children" (dogs) I've made a home here in Georgia. But parts of me long for Ohio. I've only been here in Georgia for a little under 2 years now. Most times I don't really miss Ohio that often. But last night at work I broke down and cried. I missed home. More importantly, I missed my two best friends in the whole world. And I blame this hub, my sad heart, the tears and all. on them. Though if they do get to read this hub they will laugh and call me names just like they did last night! :)
You see I have two of the most amazing best friends ever. Kim, Sara and I are sisters from different mothers. We've been friends for years. But growing up and moving on with our lives has taken us all in drastically different directions. Kim moved to Oregon, got engaged and had a baby. (I've yet to meet the little man). Kim only makes it to Ohio a few times a year now. And since I've moved to Georgia I've missed all of her homecoming visits.
Sara is still in Ohio. She's the only one that is left behind. She has a daughter that I haven't seen since just after she was born.
Yes I've made friends here in Georgia. But they just aren't the same. Sure we joke, get along and occasionally text each other. But there is nothing like the girls I've been friends with for years. Kim and Sara are the friends that you can call at 4am just to talk if you needed to. We have all seen each other at our worst and at our best. We've been there to cry on each other's shoulders and stand up for one another. They are my sisters. Through thick and thin they are always there. Sure we don't talk to much anymore, but we all know if we need it we are all there.
So I guess you are wondering what it is that made me so sad? Well Kim is home. in Ohio, right now. And I'm here in Georgia. And it sucks. I want to be with my girls. I miss them both so very much.
Last night while at work I received a picture message on my cell. I looked at it and I started to cry. I don't cry, I hold emotion in very well. But this picture message contained Kim and Sara smiling back at me with the caption "We wish you were here" And I broke. Because I truly wished at that moment that I was there, in that picture with them. Of course I told them that I hated them for making me cry and they laughed. But it's not something I take to heart, because I'm sure they felt just as sad as I did that I couldn't be there. But laughing and making jokes is what we do. It's who we are as a collective whole. It's what makes our friendship so bright and fun. And even though they laugh, I know they feel the same pain I do. And I know that they miss me just as much as I miss them.
