Apparently I’m a twice a year blogger now.
I’m always hopeful this will change and I’ll find something fantastically exciting and noteworthy to blog about.
Well, I guess this makes the cut on both of those levels.
The Friesens are doing something I never saw coming. We’re moving. Not just moving houses in the same community, or moving to a nearby community…like moving, moving. Nathan was sought out by a company in West Des Moines looking for a software developer. We decided there was absolutely no harm in interviewing with them and seeing where it would lead. It’s led us to this…selling a house, buying a house (which has proven to be way more exhausting than I ever thought possible…although we have a fabulous realtor helping us out!), choosing a new community, a new school, and an eventual new job for me.
Emotion check: scared, terrified, excited, nervous, apprehensive, anxious, excited (oh, wait…i said that already). But to sum it up: OVERWHELMED
Then “Why are you moving?” you may be asking.
My answer…because we’re jumping and trusting we’ll land. Because we believe in seeing signs around us and following those signs (which I truly believe to be divine) to where we need to be.
But, for as much as we believe, we still have fear. Which seems absolutely ridiculous to me…but we do. It’s in our nature. Mine for sure.
I’m still clinging to hope that we’ll see this in our yard very soon (I’m told it helps if you list your house first though…baby steps)…and then we’ll be truly on our way.
