I've always said that it takes a Village to raise my children.
And it's true.
Since I split from my husband 3 years ago,
I've relied on my village to help me out.
And now that period of support has come to an end.
My mother and stepfather are moving away.
My grandmother is moving away.
My dad is moving away.
For the past few years, we've all lived in the same town,
within a mile or two of each other.
And now, hundreds and thousands of miles are going to separate us.
My Village is gone.
It's become a ghost town.
Not only will I miss their companionship and our regular family dinners,
but I will also miss their help and support in raising my boys.
I suddenly feel so very alone.
So, please excuse my funk.
It's going to take a while to grieve this huge life change.
