…when I found out we were moving asap. Hubby’s childhood home is now vacant and is available for us to live for free. I should be happy, right but instead I cried. I realized living here for three years means we have definitely planted our roots here. There, my tears are creeping up again. We love our apartment, we love our subdivision, we love the playground, we love Z’s school, we love our neighbors, and we love the fact that hubby’s work is just 30 minutes away. Most of all we love our church, Z’s Sunday school, and our pastor who gives such inspirational talks that turned me, who was not a church goer, look forward to going to church every Sunday. I hate the fact that we’re leaving it all behind and I hate the fact that hubby’s work is going to be an hour away. It’s so hard to be leaving our life behind and that’s why I cried.
Anyway, I know this is just temporary and I don’t want to sound ungrateful to the blessing God has given us. The perks are we don’t have to pay for rent every month anymore, we will be closer to my hubby’s relatives, and Z would have the privilege to know all his relatives from his Dad’s side of the family. We can finally settle down permanently and not move from apartment to apartment. So it’s not that bad really! I just got emotional about the changes that will be happening.
It’s funny really God’s timing for everything. I was mainly worried how I was going to be climbing up and down our rickety stairs when my tummy gets big and now that we’re moving I guess my problem is solved. I also want to give birth at the same maternity clinic where I gave birth to Z five years ago and now that we’re moving back there I don’t have to worry anymore about the distance. Yesterday, we almost bought Z new uniforms because we thought he was still going to his old school but for some reason we didn’t. Just goes to show we really don’t know what God’s plan for us is. Of course, the house is old and needs renovations but at least we can save up for that.
Thank you, Lord for the blessing you gave us. Don’t mind silly old me crying my heart out last night – it’s just that you took us by surprise. I have visions of Z growing up here. We wanted to live here forever even though we’re just renting. LOL! Seriously, while other people were praying for a house of their own, I was praying for, not a house but our own profitable business (so we can buy a house after, hehe). But thank you so much for this unexpected blessing, Lord. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
