366 Project - Day 213 - "The Notes"

July 31, 2016 - "The Notes"

As many of you already know, my sister-in-law and nieces recently made the move from Connecticut to North Carolina. It was a difficult thing... yet something the four of them needed to do, if for no other reason than to at least try to regroup and begin the next chapter of their lives. This past year since my brother's death has been hell for all of us - but most of all for the four of them.

North Carolina is a completely clean slate for them. They have no connection to the state whatsoever. They do not have any family there... and, other than the realtor who has become a friend, didn't know anyone who lives there. They just felt the need to do it and, after much research, decided the where, when and how of it all.

It takes a tremendous amount of strength and courage to make so big of a change in life, especially when there are so many unknowns that come with it. I, for one, am incredibly proud of them!

Anyway... What does any of that have to do with today's photo?

I send my sister-in-law hand-written notes which she is not allowed to open until Sunday each week. These are the notecards I use for them... and over the next couple of days I'll be sitting down to write out three or four weeks worth of notes to send to her.

Just little reminders to say "You are never alone!".
