The distance between Mesa and Montana, where my Mandi moved last Saturday. The move has been in the works for eons, but I still feel like the rug was pulled from beneath my feet. Sisters are a finite commodity, after all. And I like mine close.
Mandi & I were the only siblings who have stayed in AZ from marriage to babies and beyond. She has been there for me through every high and low over the past 9 years. She is an amazing mother & example of good living to me, a girl who tends to complicate most issues. I will miss her terribly.
I tell myself *at least* she didn't leave directly from my neighborhood to Montana. We've had some time to adjust from our lives being that intertwined.
She & Nate keep reminding us that there are cheap flights to Bozeman.
Davyn keeps reminding me, too.
London is his lifelong best friend.
A week together every summer was their request. Sounds good to me.
