Three Years Ago

This was us.  I remember feeling anxious.  I remember feeling emotionally drained.  I remember wondering why we were doing this; that it was crazy to leave our jobs, our home, our friends, and our little community.

I also felt held.  Held my the comfort and hard work of friends who came to help me.  Held by the confidence and clarity of my husband.  Held by the willingness of my three sweet children, who were all ready to embark on this great adventure.  Held by the understanding that in the end,

this. would. be. good.

And now, I am grateful.


  1. What a dear, dear family you are. Courageous and trusting and open to life.
