If you look at the top right hand corner of my page you will see where I used to twitter. I stopped exactly a year ago. Why? I don't know. I think FB and blogging are really all I can do; and because I used to tweet I know what I was doing on this day one year ago:) What were you doing?
I lived in VA and was visiting the beautiful Maymont Park on a spectacular spring day. My friend Beth and her kids were with us. We had a blast, except for the five minutes in which Blake was lost.....extremely hilly place, lots of trees......I was enjoying the beauty and Blake was not really paying attention.....so there you go.
I was also preoccupied with finding a job for Skip. The lead we had at this time was with a company called Cricket. I received a phone call in the park from the lead Hr person in the area. Nothing came of it, but I had to put my hope somewhere......Anyway, I miss Richmond, it's beauty, and my dear, dear friends. At least twice a week my boys and Claire played with Beth's kids and Beth and I could visit. That my friends is hard to not miss.
Don't get me wrong I am loving it here. I am making new friends slowly, watching as my kids struggle to make new friends too. There are a lot of great people here and I am always amazed at how divine providence works, but some days you just wish.......I know, If wishes were fishes......who came up with that anyway?
"Bloom where you are planted," another great one. I am trying to. I have had Recipe Club for five months now. It's going....fare......no one's fault, it just hasn't worked out how I had hoped. I might have to rework my thinking on it. It is hard to duplicate perfection.....thanks Suz you are awesome.
Well, Back to life. Back to reality. To tell the truth, it is a pretty great place to live and my kids and I have had some experiences we never would have had in VA. We are together, we have the Gospel and we have a job. Life goes on and we roll with the punches and soar with Eagles when we can.....I wonder where I will be next year?
