A cute little pond right beside one of the many gorgeous lakes in north Louisiana and a fox that lives at the little rescue center beside the lake.
For awhile now I’ve been hinting at some big changes coming up, but I didn’t want to announce what it was until things were definite. We’re moving back to Louisiana! We’ve all wanted this for years, so I’m beyond excited.
We’ll be moving up to North Louisiana. While I’m originally from South Louisiana my parents grew up in Bossier City and that’s where most of my family lives, so it feels equally like home, which Texas has never felt like. It’s now just under a month until the move! We’ve slowly been working on moving some stuff up there in storage over the past couple of months, and yesterday my dad was interviewed and hired for his new job! When we first get there we’ll stay with my grandmother for a little bit until we close on a house.
We still have to sell this house, but thankfully there’s already two people interested in it, so Lord willing it shouldn’t take long. We plan to show it to the interested parties in about a week, and if they decide they don’t want it we’ll put it on the market the week after.
There’s much to do! Currently our house is filled with empty boxes and stuff is scattered so that we can put it into the boxes, but that’s taking longer than we’d like. Sarah’s really excited about the move, but with her autism she doesn’t handle change well, so it’s a twenty-four/seven job trying to help her through the transition.
The move feels like a very much welcomed restart. The past couple of years have been terribly difficult in many ways for the whole family, and it’s nice to be going back to our home state and being able to start over in a new house, new job, new church, new environment. And we’re doing this while getting back to our extended family, which we’ve wanted for quite a while.
This is a large reason why I’ve been unable to blog much as of late, along with helping with Sarah when able and taking care of my health. My health is currently a full-time job, but the Lord blessed me with growing through my disease and now He’s blessing me through the treating of the disease. I still have a far ways to go, but I believe by the end of the year my health will be in a much better place.
I don’t know what blogging will be like for the next month, due to the move, however I think by the beginning of April I’ll be able to blog regularly. There’s no wifi at my grandmother’s house, but I’ll probably be able to write the posts on my laptop and then schedule them when I visit the library or coffee shop.
I look forward to sharing this experience with all of you! You can follow me on Instagram to get more frequent updates.
