This economy has really taken a toll on our hearts these past few years. Living in a small town is wonderful. I can't say enough how much I love it here. The thing is, when jobs get scarce there really is no alternative but to leave. Many of our dearest friends have made this decision peppering our hearts with holes. An airy heart sounds like such a pleasant thing doesn't it? It's not. We ache for our friends in a way that is sometimes very unpleasant.
For a little while Audrey's heart is going to feel a bit more like it's old self. The Montana size hole is going to be full again... for a week and a half. Mine is feeling a bit better for this visit too... It's just that her mama didn't come and fully take care of my cavern. Why does Montana have to be so big? A Rhode Island sized hole would certainly not be so breezy! Of course I'm only referring to the size of the hole... not the travel distance for surgery. ;)
