This is my range of emotions right now. I am so excited that in two days I am moving to my new home to be with my hubby. On the other hand I am scared, nervous and sad to leave what has been my home for the last 8 and a half years. I have spent some quality time with a few of my friends here the last couple of days, and it really hit me that I'm leaving.
Skip has found a rent house for us in a great neighborhood, and we were given such a wonderful gift to help us the first few months. The house is smaller and older, but it will be just perfect for us for the next year. I have learned so much about being content over the past six months since Skip began his new position that I know God will provide us with all that I need. We will keep our house on the market and pray it sells quickly. I wish I could share with you all the wonderful memories I have in Corpus, but I am crying so badly just typing this sentence I know I couldn't even get through it. My friends I am leaving behind, I will miss you so much. You have to come and visit me! I know of some great downtown restaurants, antique stores and coffee shops I would love to take you too.
We are basically taking everything with us because we don't want to move twice. I know a lot of people say an empty house doesn't sell as well as a furnished one, but since our house is only two and a half years old, most of our competition is new homes. Let's pray that this faith step of moving forward will be the best choice ever. Our God is so good, and I'm continuing to believe the best for our situation. I want to lift up in prayer my next door neighbor (whose name is also Susie) who has a house in New Mexico that has not sold, and my neighbor Janet, whose husband is already working in Dallas and has not sold her house. And I could not forget sweet Linda at Middle Years and Laurel Wreath, who are both in a similiar situation.
