Going Back

its official.  we're moving back to Michigan!
Nate has accepted a job as a financial planner in Holland, MI and I still can't really wrap my head around it.  It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I was gripping my hands onto the seat of nate's trailblazer, fully terrified of moving to Portland, Or.

Now things have flipped.  I'm not terrified to move back to Michigan, but I am fully aware of what an intense transition it will be for this family.  Fully aware of the faces and hearts that I will miss here in Portland, all the while fully aware that the God of all comfort goes with us anywhere we go.

even though things have been crazy here that past couple of months, i am really hopeful that these last few moments here in Portland will be fond memories that I can dig deep to find when I am sitting in Michigan longing for my church or the friends that I love.

well, gotta go pack.  would appreciate any prayers.
Onward to the mitten!

to say that this month was crazy would be a complete and total understatement.  i bet you could tell since I haven't posted anything in almost a complete month.
i struggled with insomnia for weeks.
we've been looking for a new direction and change for our family.
we lost loves ones, including nate's sweet grandma.
we made two teeth.
we traveled to Michigan again.
anxiety crept up.

basically things we wacko.
but (i hope) things are becoming clearer.  skies are getting brighter..

and i'm back to work!
so if you need anything, let this girl know. and i promise to post more :)
