A couple of posts ago I asked, “To move or not to move? That is always the question.” Well, I got my answer: looks like we’re moving. Where? To Texas, but not in the same place as my kids and grandkids. We’ll be about 4 hours away, and that’s better than 12!
My answer came in the form of a promotion for my husband. It’s really great! I’m so excited for him – and me.
It’s really one of those God-orchestrated things where you can’t believe how it all works out so nicely. Not to say that there won’t be challenges and difficulties, but you can’t doubt the rightness of it.
All my minimizing, weeding out, and decluttering is so worth it right now! There are things here and there that I’m getting rid of but for the most part, I can say, “This is what is going with us.” And, it’s not much.
I feel like the past two years has been setting me up for this move…
there are still emotions. The untangling of my heart from this place, loosening of my fingers from around memories.
Also, holding my breath to see if my friendships can stand the test of distance. Fearing they won’t, praying that they will.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older is that conflicting emotions that battle inside of me won’t kill me and after the dust has settled I usually find that they can live together and both be right at the same time.
On a side note: I’m thinking about starting a vlog in conjunction with this blog. Would you like to see me and hear me and let me show you where I’m going? Let me know!
Thanks for being patient with me dear reader!
