Hey everyone, sorry I have been away for so long but I have been doing a lot of thinking, soul searching and working.It seems to me when I have major decisions to make in my life that I turn inward and contemplate on my choices until I reach a decision.It seems that over the month of Feb. that is what I have been doing. I am back and will continue to post regularly.
In the last post I spoke of the south calling me home and my hubby and I have reached a decision and hopefully by the end of the year we will be going home to either TN,NC,GA,SC, or Ky.The exact place will depend on job opportunities and housing. I love all these states for a variety of reasons. I look forward to maybe being home and able to spend Christmas with my family this year.I hope you will follow me in this year of choice and changes and as we eventually venture back across country.
I still love Oregon with all my heart and this was a bittersweet choice for us as I love living so close to the Ocean and I love the West but in the end family won out. I want to be able to see my sister and her kids and watch them grow up. I want them to know me as an aunt more that just someone they see once a year.I do know that as long as I live Oregon will have a huge part of my heart and I do not regret living here and the lessons I learned here.
I believe that anything that happens in life you can learn from and I have learned so much about myself as a person while living here that I would never have learned had we not made the move here.
I look forward to the year ahead with some fear,much anticipation , and seeking what lies ahead and the lessons to be learned. Here's hoping you will join me on the journey.
If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.
