Change

This has been much more of an introspective kind of week. So many thoughts it's hard to put them all into words.

Changes are happening.

My husband quit his job of 13 years. Today was his last day. In February his department was told they could either move to Kentucky or lose their jobs at the end of the year. While we have nothing against Kentucky we didn't feel like moving 2 states away from any of our family was in God's plan. We are incredibly grateful that he found a job here in our small city. I am not complaining. There's just always apprehension with a big change.

But there are still so many other situations and areas where I sense change coming. I don't know how to explain it. I just sense something.  Some of it I'm torn over. Some of it I would love to see happen, but wonder if it ever will change. Still other situations break my heart for the friends involved.

Whether it's how we thought things should have been or not, change happens. I'n not saying I have a horrible, problem filled life. I don't. I have a great life. I am truly blessed. Change is just hard no matter where you are.

The question is how we handle the changes. For that I'll have to let you know down the road.

Which I guess it's apt that this book arrived in my mailbox today to review. This post by Billy Coffey and this one by Grant Jenkins also played into a lot of my thinking this week.

I know. Very random and if I could share a lot of it with you it would make more sense.

So if you are still reading all my ramblings from today, thank you. Enjoy this song that has also been a huge part of my thoughts this week as well.
