Saying Goodbye


I won’t write much – sounds too dramatic, and almost silly.    My little girl is on her way to Michigan – to her new life with her amazing new family.  I am so happy for her, truly I am.  And she is so excited to begin this new life.  I would never wish it away.  But my heart is heavy with what feels like grief.

God bless your day – I am blessed even now.



About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    Mrs. Petty   I can’t say i know what your going through from a mothers perspective, but from a sisters perspective i can, Emily did the same thing 10 days after she got married. She went to live Nate, and your wonderful family. I know the pain of losing someone close, but also knowing that their happy, and ou want to celibrate with them. I know how bittersweet it is… I will be praying for you, im so sorry it hurts so much… i will be thinking of you, and covering you in much needed prayer and comfort…Love you so much!Abs

    Aww, I know your feelings.  The joy and the loss.  God is good to give grace…I will ask for His grace for you in this.  It is a blessing to love them so much!
