Its been a while since my last post and thought it was time for an update. We moved about 10min from our town home in winston salem to kernersville. I'll admit, the move was tough and full of emotions. I was officially a single mom on my own. The week of the move I was pretty down, which makes it nearly impossible to get packing done! My friends and church family really came through for me and I pretty much had someone with me at all times helping me pack. The day before the move I had a full house of friends helping me out, and the day of the move a group of men from the church came and got us all moved in. I even had friends come over afterwards to help me unpack and organize. During that time I felt so unworthy of some much help and love. I wanted to repay everyone, but had nothing to repay them with...other than cake! I was shown so much grace, unmerrited undeserving grace. I was given a glimpse of Christ through the selfless love I was shown.
We are now getting settled in and I am actually thankful for our new place. We live right behind one of my very dear friends, Becky, who is renting her trailer out to us for an incredibly low price. So I live next door to one of my best friends...whose children are best friends with my children...who share their yard with my kids...which is complete with all kinds of places to explore, a trampoline, and even a little slide that kydon is in love with. I have a new oven in here, a dishwasher that actually dries my dishes, and a huge tub that the boys have taken over. Initially I really struggled with giving up my dream for a place of my own and becoming so dependent on others, but I'm starting to see how this is good for me right now.
