I know I was supposed to take a sabbatical from blogging, and as fun as it's been, I've been reflecting recently about my life over the past year, and all that's happened and changed in my life; good, bad and ugly.
A year ago, almost today my head was still reeling because I'd accepted a job in Wichita Kansas.
A year ago, almost today I was packing up my life to go to Kansas.
A year ago, almost today my lovely dog Taffy was watching me pack up my life to go to Kansas. (She's in dog heaven now, with God who made her) - From the book "Dog Heaven"
A year ago, almost today I was frantically looking for an apartment, calling several places a day to see if I'd have a place to live in a week.
A year ago, almost today I was dating someone.
A year ago, almost today I went shopping at IKEA with Jenna. Funny, I'm going there tomorrow to shop with my sister and mom.
A year ago, almost today I was 3 days away from moving.
A year ago, almost today I made my first purchases at a teacher store. I made another visit to one today, and I got some great items!
A year ago, almost today I could not even imagine that in one short year I would be in the place I am now. God has blessed me so incredibly immensely over the past year. I have had family and friends support me in my move, I was able to find a fantastic apartment to live in, I've found a church and friends in my new dwelling place. (Can I call it home...where is home?) I've had moments where I had to utterly and completely rely on God to help me buck up and put one foot in front of the other, and move on with a smile on my face.
A year ago, almost today I didn't think how blessed I'd be in one short year.
Where will I be one year from today? Any speculations?
