Time to cry

The movers are coming this week to Joel and Judith's apartment. They will pack their belongings in boxes and load the boxes and Ford Focus in a semi-truck to haul to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Joel begins his new job, designing combine headers, next week.

I am excited for my brother. Since he was a little boy Joel has dreamed of farm machinery. But I'm sorry for myself--ten hours is a long, long, long drive.


  1. Sniffle, sniffle, snort, sniffle. It is a sad to watch loved ones move away. May the Lord go with them and keep them and make his face to shine on them.

  2. I have a dream of all the Cooks, Bylers, and Forsees moving this way.
    Well, it doesn't hurt to dream, does it?
    I also have memories of MANY 10 hour trips taken in years past...somehow the last 4 hours once we passed the PA line always seemed so very long.
