Where Did Everybody Go?

I experienced something similar -- but in reverse. Several years ago, I uprooted myself from my life and close circle of friends in another part of the country and moved here to take care of my elderly parents. It was extremely stressful. Fortunately, I could keep in touch with my far away friends via Facebook, email, and long catch-up phone calls. It wasn't the same, but it was better than total absence. Some friendships held up over distance and time -- some didn't. In an effort to make new friends here, I joined several groups with shared interests and became involved in their activities as much as possible. As my mother declined, I had to devote most of my time to her care and had to withdraw from participating in these activities for several years. Now in the months since her passing, I've been welcomed back and gratefully have been able to pick up where I left off. I'm extremely thankful to have friends both nearby and long distance -- those who know me as I was before and those who know me now. And who I can enjoy and support as well.
