Finally Home

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Once again I can say we are finally home....It was a very long 2 weeks, lots of emotions and difficult decision's had to be made.....I need to set my priorities, and keep moving forward....I thought losing weight was the hardest thing in my life to do....But I am finding that is not necessarily the truth.
I have had a very blessed life with always more than I needed.. I feel that the Lord is testing me now to see what I am really made of.....I have had several tearful moments and some down right crying spells. Like most people I don't handle changes well....I am going through a host of emotions but a dear friend sent me these words, not sure where they came from or from who....but they helped me today to get through a rough patch.....

"LEARN TO TREASURE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS NOT YOUR POSSESSIONS"

So when I have to sell, get rid of or give away a lot of my possessions I will try to remember that I will have a nice home to live in and I have my beloved Gary by my side....He has been very patient with me and very honest, letting me know just what has to go and what can be kept...

the next 6 to 8 weeks will be rough and I will need to be strong and keep praying that this too will pass.

Thank you Spark Friends for your support and friendship.....I hold the fact that no matter where I live SparkPeolple and friends are right here for me each step of the way...


Have a healthy week

and tips on moving 1500 miles would be appreciated.....

Kitt.....

    Hugs and hugs. Change is hard, and tears are okay. One step at a time, sweetie. Hugs and hugs.

    Lifting you to our heavenly Father in prayer. You can do everything you need to do through his strength. Tight hugs.

    And you are right, you'll still be just as close to your spark friends as you were.

    That sounds too far away for you to be moving to Arizona. Too bad.
    When I moved to Arizona it was about an 1800 mile move. And it was me and my three daughters. I sold a lot and rented a U-Haul trailer for the rest.
    Good luck!!

    Kitt, I understand what you're going through. I've had 3 major moves in my life and a lot of minor moves. It's extremely hard. I moved from Michigan to Kansas when I was 18, originally to help my sister and her family. Then I ended up getting a great Federal job. During that time, my dad was diagnosed with cancer and died about 5 years later. It was so hard being so far away. Then just a few months later, I moved from Kansas to Georgia. That was the biggest move for me. I've lived here for 30 years and I love it. Unfortunately, my son may be moving away after graduation and I might have to move one more time to be near him.

    It's hard to make decisions on what to bring with you. For me it was just taking the necessities and later you can always buy more. It is hard, but you will get through it. You will meet new people and maybe you will be close to some Spark friends. Take care!! You will be fine!!

    Hugs,

    Lainie

    Kitt, I love the way that you worded your blog. I know that we tend to develop emotional ties to possessions, but you seem to be coming to grips with it better than most people do when things change in their lives. I know that someday I will reach a point that I am going to have to make some of the hard decisions that you are making right now. The fact that you can reach out to your beloved Gary and know that he is right there with you, should help get you through all of this. Just know that your Spark Friends love you and are praying for you. emoticon

    first and foremost Kitt ((( emoticon )))

    YOu will find that things you thought you loved are easily forgotten or replaced but the people you love when they are not close you will miss in your heart for ever..
    now you should include your beautiful Leah!

    love you!!
