Where is home?
Am slowly coming to terms with all the major life changes that are coming so very soon.
On my birthday last month, Nick asked what I wanted to do. I asked if we could go to the cemetery, and he kindly obliged. (Love this man who humours the sentimental side of me!) Having been engaged just a few days before that, it seemed fit almost, to do something like that.
Saying hello to something new sometimes requires a goodbye.
It feels a little like death. To leave a job I thoroughly enjoy and students whom I love with all my heart. To leave a church that has been so supportive and nurturing in so many ways, people who have seen me through my illness and heartbreak. Leaving my family; walking away from what has been a vital part of my life these twenty-eight years. I trust the Lord will keep me through that painful pulling away, and not just for me, but I know He will take care of my parents and brothers too.
But yes, I am saying goodbye to a life I once knew.
