creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Ready?…or Not?

I can’t say the I feel ready but it’s happening.

I’m moving my #3 child out of the house and getting her settled in Seattle right now.

After spending almost half my life being a full-time mom my life will be slipping into something…different!

I refuse to call it ‘empty nest‘.  When I return home it will be anything but empty.  My home is so full of our kids and the daily{ness} of our 24 years of being parents.  One of my goals throughout these years was to have a home that our kids would ALWAYS want to come home to {do you hear that, kids?}.  And I think that we’ve accomplished just that.  One of our biggest joys right now is to be together…I appreciate every moment.

My parting tomorrow could be one of emotional proportion but I think I’ll hold it together {at least until I get in my car and start crossing over the 520 Bridge to head east}. I’ll have 5 hours to think about how quickly this all happened.  I’ll certainly think about the sadness but I’ll also be overwhelmed {once again} about God’s goodness and faithfulness in our lives.  I love how He leads and directs.

Then I’ll dream about the future and listen to whatever kind of music that I want to listen to!!!
