This is one of the posts that I've kind of put off. There are just times when being reflective is hard or maybe that it can just be hard to share. We went to the mountains last month to help my parents with packing and getting ready to move. This move is one that came up quickly and we are all trusting is God's best plan. That still doesn't always make it easy. I think a move - even when a good thing - is still a LOT of work! Thankfully my parents have some incredible friends that have helped so very much!
The mountains are such a beautiful place. My Mom was born in the mountains of NC and so its always been home. When Dad retired, they chose to stay here full time and it has been the place my children have almost always known. (They moved here when Christopher and Rebecca were both very young.)
In the midst of changes, I'm praying for hearts to embrace and give thanks. I'm praying especially for my parents as this is a huge change for them and I know that being away from friends will not be easy.
Life has so many twists and turns. Some we see coming and others take us by surprise. I'm thankful that on this journey I have been blessed with family and friends to walk with me. I'm thankful for a Father who loves me, guides me and sometimes carries me.
