I know I have hinted that we had some things that needed much thought and prayer, and they were not about my health. I have questioned whether I should blog about it, or even if I should continue to blog. But after speaking with some of my closest blog friends, they encouraged me to continue blogging. So I will share what has been going on.
In a sentence, my husband and I are moving. As I tell you this, there is a big hole in my heart because I love our home and thought it was my last home. But after months of consideration and weighing the pros and cons, we have decided to move closer to my doctors, my husband's work, and to go into a gated 55plus community. And downsizing. Now, my current home isn't all that big...my new one, much smaller. I won't even go into the crying and begging God to give me a joyful spirit.
No, I am not thrilled about it. I could lie...but I think that things being what there are for so many of us, that would not be a help to anyone. The reality is...things being what they are, me no longer being able to work, and my husband drawing closer to retirement....we believe it is the right choice, and the choice that the Lord seems to be drawing us to.
As you know, I am quite the sentimental person. My husband has always said I have 10,000 personal friends...my stuff! Well, you can't put 10 pounds of flour in a 2 pound bag...if you get my drift...so some things have got to go. This is why I have been cleaning and reorganizing, and now packing.
I am hoping that you will still want to follow my blog. My blog is mostly about my home...and that is not going to change. It may not be grand, but it will still be my home, my joys, my frustrations, be it different. I hope you will continue to follow along.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Moving while being on chemo was not on my list for 2012.....but it must have been on God's! We have been amazed at how He has answered some specific prayers regarding our new place. I will share those with you as this journey continues....
Well, going to go for now...no pictures, just boxes, and boxes, and, well...you get the idea!
We will be doing the actual move the middle of April.
