My kids handprints from our old driveway
Goodness gracious ~ it’s been a long week already, and it’s only Wednesday morning! We arrived safely in Columbus after midnight last night, and (fingers crossed) close on our new home later today.
It’s been a hard, sad, oh-so-blessed-that-it-just-hurts-to-go few days, as we said goodbye to so many wonderful friends Monday and Tuesday. When we finally got all tucked in last night my big-ole’ 14 year old just looked and me with tears in his eyes and asked “Is this really happening?” Bless him, it’s so stinkin’ difficult to just exist at all when you’re 14, so I absolutely hate that we’ve thrown this curve ball his way.
Here’s my make-shift desk in the closet of my husband’s apartment today (I didn’t want to wake anyone up with my typing!) It’ll be awhile before I have a real office again, but surely I can find something a little more appropriate than the top of a Rubbermaid cooler (surely?)
I can’t even begin to thank you for all your kind words, thoughts and emails as you all have encouraged me while we get through this. I never expected such an overflow of support, and have been thoroughly shocked at how many of you took time to email me, and even more surprised at how many Ohio readers there are here on PPP. (Really – so many folks have sent emails with so many tips on the area – I am so blessed!) My heart’s still a little (a lot) achy this morning, but I know things will look brighter in a few days as we settle in.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers (especially for a cute 14 year old blonde boy who could really use it today) ~ praying God’s grace on your day too!
