To Everything there is a Season…
No one really experiences change of life seasons as much a mom. Everyone experiences their own seasons but when you are a wife and a mom you are along for the ride with your loved ones in their own journey. Career changes, school changes and stage of life changes are just a start. When I decided to start this blog at my husbands encouragement I felt like I was finally at a season in life where I could focus more on my own goals. All my children were in school, they were much more independent and our marriage was very secure and healthy. It was my time.
And then we decided on a major change. As Mr. Wonderful and I grew more passionate about goal setting and living our best life we decided to set a huge goal- a relocation into a forever home of our dreams. We wrote it down, we laid out the plan. We prayed hard. We set the intention, gave it over to God and let go with absolute faith that He put this on our hearts for a reason and it was going to happen.
And it did, it happened fast. Once we began the journey into this chapter every single piece of the puzzle fell right into place and before we could catch our breath, we were packing up our home of 12 years and relocating to another, very different part of our state. It was exciting and we were so grateful, but it did kick off a whirlwind of change for every member of our family.
And that’s where mom life really kicked into high gear. Packing and setting up our new home, helping our kids say goodbye to their old schools and sports, transitioning our oldest baby out of the nest, supporting my husband in a much larger commute, building a new business, leaving behind my own friends and volunteer work I loved, settling our kids into new schools and activities… each of these things deserve their own story but its safe to say we went through a lot of change in a short period of time.
And look at where we are now. Happy, thriving, and truly living our best lives. This tornado of changing seasons tested us and brought us so much closer as a family. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
