I have a stamp that reads:


"Even though we're far apart; you're always in my heart"



(Not very wordy, but it says a lot.... and, it was the first thing that popped to mind)

I'll keep searching, but I found this poem that someone wrote about Moving Day. I wasn't sure if you wanted a poem that would signify that you will miss her when she moves. This one is as if the person that is moving is writing this, but this can be a great first page in a 6 x 6 keepsake scrapbook that she can add pictures to about their move. Maybe you can premake a few pages in a scrapbook to put in her gift basket and have someone take a picture of you and her in front of the moving van or her old house before she leaves as a remembrance:

Moving Day

Moves define a lifetime journey
through dark valleys and bright hills

Friends come and go as one travels the crooked paths
strewn by smooth gravel and rocks

Excitement and sadness blend as the moving van
pulls up to our familiar streets of safety

The intruder opens its doors making room for memories
and artifacts collected along the way

Moving vans come in many different shapes and sizes—
from large 18-wheelers hauling entire families cross country

To trailers taking our sons and daughters
to universities and colleges

Some moves are blissful—that first house, first child, first grandchild,
some moves are sad—that first divorce, loss of a child or aging parent

Most moves signify hope and new beginnings
some moves denote an end to relationships and familiar faces

Most people are apt to stay put, content with their sameness
and life’s routines, a constant reminder of forbidden fruit

A few dare to embark on sudden journeys that pull at
their heartstrings, propelling them to exciting places

Thus, moving day is a momentous occasion, delineating before and after,
familiar and unknown, reality and fantasy

Let us be mindful that our final moving day can transport us
to glorious sunsets or colorless purgatory

The choice is ours—to take a chance on limitless rainbows,
or be left behind in total darkness

I was posting the poem I found when others gave suggestions. I like the sentiment that SheStampsHeCamps wrote: "Even though we're far apart; you're always in my heart". That can be a nice saying inside your gift card or gift tag that you attach to whatever you are putting together for her. The poem can also be printed in a nice script font and put in a frame that you can stamp and embellish.
