I promised to start blogging again when I finished writing my romance. What I didn’t anticipate was my life turning upside down and me ending up smack in the middle of Texas.
I did finish the rough draft of my book and during the trials of trying to set up life in a place I had never set foot in, the writing kept me sane. What would I do without it?
Many of you kept up with my journey on Facebook. I really appreciated your support. When my husband got the call for a new job, I had two weeks myself to pack my 2300 sq foot home, and then drive across the country for two twelve hour days following the U-Haul. Then he went back to work and I stared out at my temporary neighborhood wondering if I would be able to find my way to Wal-Mart for much needed groceries.
I’ve cried and whined and praised God for this opportunity. Setting down roots isn’t as easy this time as it was when we moved to Florida ten years ago. I had my daughter with me and I’d been there before.
But Texas and her fine people have not let me down. I love it. Yes, I still need to find my church home, some friends I can call for lunch dates and a home that is ours, not to mention a paying job.
You’ve told me to take it one day at a time.
Wise advice. And as with writing, I find that not looking too far ahead really does help.
Coming back to blogging is like unearthing the missing quilt I packed weeks ago and wrapping it around my legs. Warm and comforting.
I’ve missed you and hope to finally catch up. So tell me, what’s the most important happening in your life since August?
