Curveball

Just when you get your kids figured out, in whatever stage they are going through, they change and grow and you have to grow and change with them.  As a mom I am constantly learning, constantly adapting, hoping against hope they they won't change again.  But I know they will.  Of course I want them to grow up and be successful and happy.  But, do they have to do it so quickly?

Life is much the same.  Just when I think that life is good and I know what to expect, I get thrown a curveball.  Swing-and-a-miss.

I thought that we were going to settle down in Oregon and stay here for the long run, but sadly this was not meant to be...

We are moving to Nashville.  We lived there 6 years ago, so it's not brand new, but still...curveball.  Dan and I prayed to know if this is right for us, and we both feel that it is.  Even though it's not what I want right now, I think God gives us the experiences we need to become who He wants us to become.  I am clay in His hands.  I will learn again, I will change again, and I will adapt, and most of all I will trust in Him and in His plan for me and my family.
