I know I have mentioned this before, but I really do miss Oregon. I miss my family and friends, plus all the things that Oregon has to offer. I moved away when I was 18 and never looked back. It comes down to not being happy here in NJ. I am not living my life to the fullest here and it is way to EXPENSIVE!!!! I also miss my Gram. She is my bestfriend and means the world to me. I have often felt guilty living so far. She has bee a trooped though, she has flown out to see me on several occasion and even drive cross country with me twice. Who else can say that about their Gram? She is the one person I can go to if something is wrong. I want to spend time with her, be close to her as I always worry about her and worry about what I would do if something happened to her while I was so far away. She needs me!
I miss my friend Diana! She is one of the funnest and most caring persons I know. I love her laugh! She is the one that has that laugh that can make anyone laugh! She completes me. Have you ever had a friend that just knows you? Can complete a thought? Make you feel better and is just there? I have found that in her. I also must say that I have a handful of friends like that.
Diana and her family are some of the most forgiving people I have ever met. They do not hold grudges and accept everyone. I have a lot to learn from them. They are so good to be around. Diana comes from a large family and has trickled into my family. I say this because her Aunt married my Uncle several years ago. When everyone gets together it is always a wild and crazy time. Everyone looks out for each other and I want that! I want that sense of family. I miss the days when she and I would drive to the swimming hole, going to yard sales, hitting the thrift stores or any of our crazy adventures.
I miss the mountains, I miss the rain, I miss the cold weather, I miss the coast, I miss maple bars, I miss camping, I miss biscuits and gravy, I miss the big trees and clean air.
I am so not ready to talk about the things I would miss out here and the heartache I will go through!
