Reunited, And It Feels So, Well, Fine

We made it. We have arrived in the Homeland of mountains and family. Things are good. It's nice to have a soft place to land during our free fall from life.

I'm gonna be honest, though. It's tough. I left behind some of the best friends a girl could have. I cried until about Belvidere, which means nothing to my Utah peeps, and very little to my Chicago peeps, but some of you will know that's a good 2 hour cry. That's a lot for this stone-hearted gal.

Now my new version of life begins. It's a lot different being a poor student, mooching off whatever services the government feels like handing out to us, and praying constantly that all this change isn't forever scarring my dear children for life. All I can hope for is that they see that being brave and chasing dreams and rolling with the punches is what life is all about.

So now I just get to enjoy having the warm envelope that is my family, and taking advantage of all the things I always said I would do but never did. It was good to see the faces of my dear family, and to start accepting the new normal that has become my life. I guess that's about all I can do for now.

I can't believe you're gone. I just met you. :-(
I went to Mimi's yesterday in honor of you. LOL
I didn't go to See's though cuz I still have candy from our last visit.

Things will work out and I'm glad you're with your fam.

Thank goodness we have our blogs to keep in touch and if you're ever out this way, know you have a place to stay.
Cheers

Keli! Still waiting for my reality to hit. I guess I still think I can call you guys for the weekend! I am happy you made it there safe. I am also happy you are the brave one to forge the road for me. Love you! And miss you like crazy. :(

It's amazing what a year or two can do! The friends you make quickly who become like family when you are far away from your own. The struggles of being poor students with children and holding out bright hopes for the future. Been there...done that! Just know that no matter what life throws at you, you roll with the punches and deal with what comes your way in the best way possible and that is exactly what you are doing. Life DEFINITELY doesn't go as planned...that is FO SHO!!! Let's get together sometime cuz we're pretty much neighbors now! Hang in there and as your dad constantly told me...BE PATIENT!!!

I am sure you and your children will not be scarred, but brave and strong during these new changes...I am glad you are welcoming them with open arms! Now about that party...

Kalli Ko said...

and you'll find the kiddos to be far more resiliant to the changes than you are. Welcome back to Zion, lol
