I’m on a plane right now and when I get off I will be in Sacramento, Ca. And then making a car drive to my former town that I called home for 5 years, Chico. It’s been almost a year and a half since we watched the big moving truck drive away with all of the contents of our home and one of our cars. Then the husband drove away in the other car and the kids and I boarded a plane to the next stop on this crazy ride God has us on. Eventually we landed in what we now call home Carmel, IN. So I’m going back to visit what I affectionately call my “past life”. And did I mention I’m making this trip alone? Yep. It was my husbands wonderful idea: I go visit friends and he does full time Dad duty for 5 days. Isn’t he amazing? Hold your horses girls, he’s all mine.
I’m mostly excited for my visit to see some dear friends, visit our old neighborhood, see our old house (sniff sniff) and make a trip to some of my local favorites: Tin Roof, farmers market, Bidwell and Upper Crust to name a few. But there’s also a little nervousness to along with the excitement. A lot has changed, I’ve changed. Time just keeps matching on and holding on to the past just doesn’t work. I learned the hard way. When I finally “let go” in a sense of my Chico life and fully embraced our new life it was scary but good. He met me right there. I love what has come out of this whole process. I can sit here now and say I’m thankful for where He has taken us, where we are now and confident in His faithfulness for future twists and turns. Because there will always be those twists and turns to keep me on my knees. With all that said…I’m
a tad bit nervous.
But the closer I get the more the excitement and thankfulness takes over! Here’s to a great weekend that I am so blessed to have!
