goodbye.


                                                                             2013

yesterday we took our last trek on the property we've been living to say goodbye.  for me, it's always a little sad as well as exciting.  it's the closing of a chapter in our lives and the beginning of a new one.

there's no doubt we leave a piece of our hearts behind.  and the empty spot in our hearts is replaced with memories.  it's a beautiful exchange.


the people, landscape and yes, even the animals somehow become a part of us.  we walk away stronger. and better.  and as my dad would say, more mature...with the correct pronunciation of course.

so, as we say goodbye to this amazing place the Lord had us for a bit, we'll fill our hearts with the memories.  and be forever grateful that He directs our paths and thankful for our friend who accepted us here as her family.

there is good stuff in our future that i can't wait to share.  but for now, i'm letting this chapter have it's ending.

  3. I have always (well almost) found that even though leaving is sometimes sad and difficult, when we look back, we are always better for the move. I'm not actually sure I can say that with our move here...but, that is for a variety of reasons. I can't wait to hear what your new adventure is going to be!

  11. I always get that bitter-sweet feeling when we move. Sad to go, but excited to see what lies ahead. We've been stationary for seven years now, and it is odd in a way (previously we moved 5 times in six years). I was just thinking about it the other day. I know you are about to embark on an incredible adventure, and I'm excited to hear about it!
