Hello and a happy Monday to you all. Well I suppose if you work you might not be happy to start another week and with the dreary weather we have here today I'm not so happy...anyway hello!!!
I have some interesting news to share...I guess we're moving. Now while part of that is exciting, a lot of it is overwhelming, some of it is scary, a little of it is nerve wracking, most of it is heartbreaking. You see we both grew up in this little city of ours that we call home. We went to school here, met here and fell in love here. We married here, moved back here after a short military tour, most of our family is here and we had hoped to spoil our someday grandchildren here.
You're going to shake your heads at this part and say out loud WHAT!!??!! My hubby works for Ford Motor Co. ~ on Wednesday they told him of two openings in his field that were in Michigan. The kicker...wait for it...he had to give them his answer Thursday...yep the NEXT DAY!
You see he moved to another plant last year. He has a long commute and is out of his skilled trades position. This move would put him back into his trade, secure his pension and retirement.
He went back to work on Thursday and asked for an extension until today. We made a whirl wind trip for him to visit the plants and take a peek at the surrounding area. We know this is the best thing for our future, so as I said...I guess we're moving. Not sure when yet, we have a house to sell and a new one to locate.
Now while I would like to cry me a river (believe me I think I'm almost there), I know how blessed we are. He has a good job with excellent benefits and this move is a little less than three hours from where we are now. Not so bad I suppose. But our son and daughter-in-law are HERE. That's three hours may as well be three hundred in my heart right now. No more texts from my baby boy that simply say lunch? I fear I may need a heart transplant as mine has just about broken in two. But I know with God's grace and each other we'll get through this.
Thanks for letting me bend your ears...think I just needed to get it out. This card is not for a challenge...this card is for me. It will make the move with me, be in my new craft space with me and remind me that one day we'll be back here (home) to stay. ~Lisa
