another post that mentions moving

I came across this picture yesterday, some evidence of snow here at our house, soon after we moved in five years ago.



I can scarcely believe it's been five years.

Lexi is on the cusp of finishing elementary school and Zack is growing up strong and healthy, after many health scares and too much speech therapy.

I've made amazing friends; had great adventures.

My kids are in crazy love with their nearby cousins.

I'm still crazy in love with Greg.

Our lives are sweet - sometimes boring, sometimes hard - but sweet.

When I stare out my window at the For Sale sign, I remember I had my doubts moving here. I just didn't know what was in store for me and really how could I? We just pulled the trigger and landed here.

And somehow that helps when I am restless; when I want to know RIGHT NOW where we will be in 6 months, a year.

I'm trusting it will be just fine, even when I'm nerves are shot today.

You've got all the important stuff right there within your reach, and that's how I know you'll be fine.

I love that. Sometimes boring, sometimes hard, but sweet.

Indeed. =)

How can you not think about and mention moving when so much hinges upon it?!

At least you are living in and enjoying the present, and that's all that you can do.

I love how you always connect with your blessings. We have no doubt that you will be fine. Wherever you land.

That snow is beautiful!

I admire how you get on with life even with the uncertainty of moving. Sounds like you've got your ducks lined up!

Lalalala I can't hear you.

It feels like we've been friends forever. I know we would survive you moving, but I won't like it.

I like being present everyday; you enrich my world that way.
