Getting it done

My house is a mess. A big huge mess. Anyone want to come over and pack it for me?


I didn't think so...

I am really not found of this process. The mess makes it hard for me to think straight, and straight thinking really helps when you are boxing up your entire house. Right now almost all the wood pieces we own are sitting in the living room wrapped in saran wrap (to keep them from getting scratched) along with many many boxes. Oh and a few piles of "I have no clue what to do with this stuff".

In other news my car was picked up today and is headed on its way to my parents house. It will be so nice to have my own car, there is something about having it there that makes this so much more real. I am hoping that having the familiar car there will be something to make the transition a little easier on Conner, since it is pretty much the only thing from home that is coming with us other then clothes and a few pictures.


Tonight was my last Community Group meeting. For those of you who have no clue what that is it is a smaller expression of our church body that meets every week apart from our Sunday gathering to share and live the gospel together. Community group has always been one of my favorite times of the week because the support and love that comes from living truth together is amazing. I have met some incredible sisters in Christ who have given me the opportunity to walk with them in hard times and good, letting me be apart of the laughter, heartache and even loss as we walk through this world together. I am so thankful to Lord for bringing these women into my life and I am honestly terrified of living without them. Please pray for me as I transition into being apart of the greater body of Christ, not just the "small" one of Sojourn that I have been apart of for the past four years. Thank you ladies for taking me under your wings and loving me as you do regardless of my many faults. I love you all and will miss you so much.

One of my biggest weaknesses is saying goodbye. I don't like to say it and I don't like to believe that it really is time to say it. So my friends if you come across this post please see my heart and know how precious each and everyone of you has been to me, and because I don't feel like I can express my heartfelt thanks to you all for choosing to be my friend in person without crying, I wanted to take this opportunity to call you all out and say thank you and I love you. So Rebekah, Maggie, Sarah, Joy, Jenn, Lindsey, Bethan, Elise, Rachel, and Alex, thank you and I love you.

B/c of the surgery I can't do a lot of cats but I'd love to stop by or have you over for tea! When are you leaving officially??
