Here we go again....

If you have read my brother and sister-n-laws blogs you will see that there is a VERY LARGE possiblilty of them moving away from here, all the way to NC. Now my brother would jump at any chance to move back there and I am glad that this is something that would be good fo rhim and his family. I love them and want whats best, BUT, dont I still have the right to be upset. I know that if its Gods will then they will get the job and they will b on their way and I trust that will be what is best but Gods will isnt always easy to accept. I am sure that it was Gods will that my mom leave this earth but I gotta tell you it REALLY Sucks not having her here!!!! Especially Now! So, here I am, the last remnant of my family, still here. Do people Really think that I am going to welcome the last peice of my family leaving me. It seems that its a trend. Hmmmmmm?
OK, so I just had to get that off my chest. Again, I want what is best for John and his family so I am praying for Gods will.

I understand what your heart is feeling, Sara! Of course you want what is best for John and the fam, but OF COURSE your heart hurts and this really does suck! I have been feeling more and more how much I am missing my family. I used to tell great stories of times at my mom's house. Those memories though..have just become stories now. I want to be able to make new memories with them. I love it here in Washington and believe with all my heart that God brought me here, but it gets hard from time to time. NC is at least driveable to go visit and spend time together from time to time. Think of it as a new vacation spot. You can go to the east coast and see John or go to the west coast and see Levi. Disney world or Disney Land...take your pick :)

I'm sorry, Sara! I know this has got to be a really tough possibility for you to think about! I would say try not to think about it too much for the time being- you can cross that bridge if it gets here. But all that being said- I am still really sorry-I don't like change either. I think everyone understands that you do want the best for them, but that doesn't make it any easier. On a happier note, I hope you have a very happy anniversary on Thursday!

Hi Sara. I'm sorry to hear that your family might be leaving. I sort of know how you feel. A couple years ago, my very best friend and her family moved away, and they were pretty much like family to me. Her husband was here in Grand Rapids to go to school to get a camp ministry degree. Then after he graduated, of course, they had to look for a job, which took them away. I was sad, I cried a lot, even though I knew the camp where they went was where God wanted them to be. And now, 2 years later, I see how amazingly they fit in there. I still miss them like CRAZY, but I can visit! And email and talk on the phone. Which isn't the same, especially when you share so much of your life with them. But God knows best. Hard to see at the time, but He really does. I'll be praying for you!

Levi, please understand that John and Elizabeth would be WORTH visiting. Okay, that was mean. Let's just call it distance. We'll visit you all the time in Cheese-land. I don't have to FLY there!

Annette said...

leviathen said...

shhhh. on the down low.

Just so you know Levi...we would have visited, but it costs a chunk of change for our whole family to fly out there! (And we don't have the money.) But, we have wanted to...if that counts for anything. When we moved to IN from NC...my friends and family never visited us either. We always have to go home and see them, and after a while I got ticked because it all felt one way. So, I empathize. We have lived here 7 years almost and my mom has come like 3 times, dad 0, brother 0...etc...I know how it feels...sorry!

Sara,
I know it will be hard for you IF we move...I'm sorry for that. We'll see what happens. We don't even know anything for sure yet. But, if we do go, God will give you grace to walk through it, and you have lots of friends here, not to mention Daniel's huge family to support you. I know there's nothing else that I can say to help, so I won't try...But, We Love You!!!

Levi,
Well I will tell you what a so called friend of mine said to me and see if it works for me..."You are the one that moved away, not me, so it's your responsibility to come home and visit not mine! I didn't tell you to move." Can you believe that?

We're not friends anymore. I guess that's an indicator to not say that to you, huh?:-)
