Blogging has been a part of my life for 13 years now and so it has become the instrument I use to record thoughts and feelings about the new world(s) I enter.
Living in Texas for round two, except this time I have moved into a house and find myself preparing for the arrival of the children who have never lived here with me.
Visited yes, but lived, no.
A giant sacrifice on all our parts and one I desperately pray will work out half as well as I hope because it just has to.
Unpacking It All
Alone for now, I unpack boxes and organize preparing for a new life with a bit of trepidation and a lot of hope.
Thre is an inordinate amount of pressure upon me and all I can do is say I am a big boy and take it.
All I can do is my best and hope it is enough to make the sacrifice meaningful and worth it.
My gut says the answer will be yes, but you never do know about these things until you cross through to the other side.
So here is to taking steps into the fog of the great mystery and to having the courage to see it through.
Here is to finding out whether the joke is on me and if so, learning to laugh with and at myself.
Life is an adventure for those who are daring and willing to live it.
I am and I will.
