Almost Moved

Good heavens. I knew going into this move that cleaning out a home that was LIVED in for 25 years was going to be fun (work) but I had no idea to what degree. Don't get me wrong it's been many hours of fun and some sadness. But I am happy to say that we are in the final days and we should be fully moved Aug. 7th.

Again I am facing the duality of life, the excitement of moving, meeting new people, working with a great lady at the Smoky Mountain Spinnery, and living in a beautiful area. Then realizing that I'm leaving the home where I raised both my kids, the countless fish, etc that are buried in the back yard, the tree I rescued and it only had two leaves to now it's taller than my 3 story house. Not to even mention the friends, opportunities and experiences I've had here in Atlanta. So I'm finding comfort in believing two things. 1) Life is seasonal. Everything has a time and season, things, people, etc come and go. Releasing and detatching. 2) Everything happens for a reason. There are great things ahead for me and my family, but they won't happen if I'm sitting still, afriad to move.

We are all called to walk a path, some times the path is smooth and level and then there are those times when the path is treacherous. I'm a traveler on my path, looking, learning and loving. This time my path is leading me to the Smoky Mountains.

I so look forward to keeping in touch (better than I have in the past) and staying in contact with you either through the blog or through Ravelry.

Hugs to all of you.

Good luck! I hope this path is one of joy and full of learning for you. It sounds wonderful.

I hope you find time to update your blog so we can see what all you're up to when you're settled in.

Be well.

Good luck with the move! It is very difficult saying goodbye to everyone and everything left behind. But I'm sure you will be saying "hello" to many new friends and opportunities.
