as i sat down tonight to check my blog, i felt at home.
it is so sad leaving home.
it is hard to leave friends- to begin building "family" again.
but, here at this blog, i felt that home feeling.
and that maybe, a part of it can come with me.
thanks for your sweet comments, and for being my consistency amidst my change.
we just arrived in rexburg, idaho at todd's parent's home.
it is lovely here.
there is a cool breeze that blows through their kitchen in the evening.
lush, green grass.
and snow-capped mountains in the distance.
we still haven't sold our home.
but we have renters who want to sign papers this Monday. (?!?)
AND we've had 6 showings this week (3 since we left).
i have hope.
our car ride was the best it possibly could have been.
all the kids were GREAT.
my car stayed clean.
we are safe.
i am so grateful for my mother-in-law who travelled with me.
our stuff is in transit from tx to or.
we needed an extra trailer, because we had too much stuff...
so moneywise we're still tight, but such is our life right now.
i'm overwhelmed if i let myself think about my life.
i'm so grateful.
i'm nervous about oregon, but looking forward to the beauty and new possibilities.
how i will miss texas.
so many friends did so much for our sweet family as we were leaving.
our car was packed with love from MANY thoughtful friends.
thank you! we miss you already.
people are so good.
as we travelled I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this earth.
from the desserts of texas to the mountains of wyoming.
this land is beautiful.
moving on is difficult.
but life is so good.
people are so good, everywhere.
this land is full of beauty.
today, my heart is Texan.
someday, Oregon will take root.
Oh, heaven help me make this transition.
