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.
