I can and I can't believe that it has been so long since I've posted anything. I'm having to let go of my earlier dreams of writing everyday and lower my expectations of what I'm able to accomplish as I prepare for this move. One week and three days from today our family will wake up, rev up a moving truck and transfer life, as we know it, to another state.
This is a good thing. This is something that we have thought about, prayed about, and discussed with our friends and family. This move is the right thing for our family to do. But it is hard.
There is the practical hardness--the packing, the organizing, the logistics, the details. And that, alone, is tiring. But then there is the emotional hardness, which I have only recently begun to tune into. This leaving business is hard.
I'm sure writing about all of this would have been helpful, but I've avoided the discipline. Right now I'm just going to push through.
