A good Friday

Morning coffee

I had hoped to get this post up early this morning, but life got in the way and before I knew it, the sun was setting and I was sitting on  my couch, in my pj's and wondering just where did the day go?

It wasn't a bad or overly busy day though, I think I'm so used to be being on the go that I took a break today and ended up doing nothing really, of anything, except for driving kids around.

Started my morning with a cup of coffee and some computer work.  Had emails and some bills to pay etc.  Then I headed to the bank and then to pay the rent.  It felt so weird paying the last rent on this house, I have to be honest, I'm going to miss this house, it has been such a great little home for my family and initally we had planned on staying here for at least 2 years and possibly looking into buying it had we stayed in Mountain Home.

Wasn't in God's plan though and I've learned over the years, NOT to question Him, He always knows best.

I also had to run by Walmart to pick up more packing tape, and while there I grabbed the cheap 4 stack $1 plastic plates that they have as part of their spring/summer sale.  This weekend I plan on packing up most of my kitchen and leaving really only some essentials.

Oh I'm so ready to be done with this move.  You'll hear me say that a lot in the next few weeks, sorry.

Spring

We have had the most beautiful warm days lately, today actually reached 80 degrees and I just had to step outside and enjoy it.  I think Spring is one of my favorite seasons, there is just such beauty all around us, new life, new growth, new beginnings.

As I sat on the deck watching it all around me, it dawned on me that this move to Texas is almost like Spring in our lives.  We're starting fresh, yet again, we have all these hopes and dreams, we've had to grow as individuals and as a family the past few months and we're about to start a blank new slate, a new beginning.

I used to be absolutely terrified of change and the possibility of doing something completely out of my normal routine, but I have to thank the many years as an active duty family, for teaching me how to embrace change and not be terrified by it.

Grass
I now see every new adventure chapter in our lives, as an adventure, as a story waiting to be told by us.  An opportunity to see new places and try new things, and who doesn't like that?

And speaking of new things, I have left out some of my yarn so that I can work on a quick project.  I miss my crochet so very much and I feel the need to make something pretty and yet simple, just a project that I don't have to pay too much attention to or worry about counting stitches etc. 



Yarn

Can't wait to get started.

It's getting pretty late here and I have quite a bit to get done tomorrow and need to get an early start, so I'm going to close this post off and head on to bed.

Goodnight :)

Moving is a huge pain, as you know,but a change is often exactly what is needed. God knows the plans He has for you and your family. Have a good weekend.

Spring is definitely my favorite season here in Michigan. We're having our first true warm sunny weekend of the year :)

Lovely photos of the beautiful Spring surrounding you! Hold on to that faith, dear Gal, - that God is leading you down this path for this new beginning. Who knows maybe what WONDERFUL things await you. ;)

The busy work of it does stink, so hang in there and keep up those small pampering moments for yourself to see you through.

Blessings my Friend! xo

So, you paid your last month's rent at this place. It was good for you and you took the house and made it your home. You will do this again at your next place.

Now you are getting short, time wise. That's what we called it when hubby was in the Navy and we were counting the days until he was out.

I know you're going to be so glad to be reunited with your husband. May the packing of the truck go smoothly and the drive be safe and uneventful. You are in God's hands.

I look forward to seeing your little crocheted goodies.

Love, hugs and prayers dear Sandra ~ FlowerLady

Sandra,
I completely understand the frustrations of moving. I just moved last year and now I will be moving again shortly so I feel your pain! I just wanted to let you know that I featured you on my blog for the "Saturday Spotlight" post that I just wrote.

Have a blessed day.
