I am loving the CHANGE in the weather. I pulled out my sweaters and boots! Running outside is actually enjoyable, again. It starts to get me into the BIG holiday season ahead of us.
My kids are growing like weeds and seem to CHANGE daily. I always remind myself to make a mental note of those cute moments. Save those pictures drawn on a whim. Make those ten minutes to just cuddle.
But there is another CHANGE that is taking place in our lives. Most of you know, we are moving. But it is starting to seem more real as I type it. My wonderful husband is going to be going "back" to Boston to get 3 months of cardiac training and 1 month of ICU at Boston Children's Hospital. He leaves at the end of December. Once this training is complete, he will then move to Nashville, TN. He has accepted an offer to be a pediatric/cardiac anesthesiologist at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. So the kids and I will stay here in Kansas until the end of the school year. We hope to sell our house and move into a new house in Brentwood, TN the first part of June.
With all of this CHANGE, I am always reminded of a quote I read.
"Courage is the power to let go of the familiar." So with all this CHANGE, I'm praying for courage.
