A Bit of News

Tomorrow is moving day. I've kept the details of this move under wraps mostly because the reasons behind it are quite personal. Now I'm usually very open and honest about my life on this blog, but on this particular issue...well, I'm not going to be. :-) It's too personal. Too private. Too painful. When something you've worked at long and hard for so long, have cried over, have tried and tried over and over again to make it work, and then you realize that it's just not going to work...well, it's time to make some very tough choices.

I had to make that choice about a month ago. I'm not happy about it. I've prayed a lot. Cried some more. Had the whole situation running around in my head so much that I thought it would pop from the pressure. And in the end...well, let's just say that it's time to go. It's time to take care of my health, mentally and physically, and that hasn't been possible with everything going on.

I know I'm intentionally being a bit secretive about things, and I do apologize for that, but it's one of those situations that I really don't want to just throw out there in the open. I'm incredibly sad over it, and I have kept a lot of those feelings locked inside my heart. That's how it has to be.

A new chapter is beginning in my life starting tomorrow. Good thoughts and prayers are appreciated. :-)

  8. Your post reminded me of my own situation about 15 years ago when I was making a big move - physically and in other ways. It was one of the hardest things that I ever had to do, but it turned out to be the best thing that I ever did. Stay strong, stay close to God, and stay close to good friends to will hold you up.
    Blessings and hugs to you today.

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
