Excited and Scared.

I feel a little like Red Riding Hood in “Into the Woods” — excited and scared.

After living in one place, one town, one house for nearly 17 years my family will be moving to a new place, a new city, and a new (possibly new?) house.

We just announced our plans publicly today via email and Facebook.  Now everyone knows what has been percolating under the surface for a couple of months.

Saying goodbye is not an easy thing.  Change is not something most of us embrace without a struggle of some sort.  New beginnings usually (almost always, I think) mean the end of something else.

I feel happy and sad at the same time.  Hopeful and unsettled.  Eager and hesitant.  Joy and Sorrow.

I saw this quilt in my newsfeed today.

Though we can’t see the overall pattern of each choice and each decision we make in our lives — the way each color and texture and pattern will go together — in the end it will turn out to be breathtakingly beautiful if we follow our hearts, our passion and our love.  We walk by faith, not by sight.

  1. Our loss. Your gain, as you move onto the next part of your life’s journey. I’ll sure miss the Hasker stories of Ben &Sara’s misadventures, and news of your mom. Not to mention the light and laughter you bring into my life. Best of luck to you all. Hugs.
