Girls Write Out
Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I let go of things about as easily as a pit bull. I don't like when things don't go as expected. Though I've learned over the years, there's always a reason and not to question so much. But it's nearly been two years since I had to move from my dream house and I have to go past it a lot. To run where I run, to take my daughter to her best friend's house, or pick up my son's friend. It's a pain because every time I pass it, I still question God. Why? I did so much work on that house. I literally was grateful EVERY single day I lived there.

It's not really the house I miss as much as the dream I'd built and saw come to fruition. I've changed my dream now. I'll have my own little cottage when the kids are gone and I will renovate it, but for now, it still makes me sick to drive by the house. What has helped you let go of a dream when life gives you another path?

It's hard to lose a dream, and ever harder when you come face to face with it all the time. I used to want a girl so badly, but God gave me three boys, and now I wouldn't want it any other way. He had his reasons. Someday hoping for a granddaughter though. :-)

Kris, I finally had to sit back and stop dreaming, and wait to see what happened. I know that sounds sad, but it's sure a lot less stressful. LOL

Kris, I had to move out of my dream house, too, but I never get to drive past it because I had to move out of my dream community, too, and move back where I am often banging my head against the wall.

I'm still not sure what the point of that was. But I'm here and I trudge along.

Well, Abraham had to move out of Ur, and they had a plumbing system. So I figure in the end, his descents are numbered like the stars. So maybe that's our gift Crystal. LOL I hope not, but you never know.

Okay, so dreams die. Other things take their place. I should just find a new place to hike. LOL

But we need dreams for hope. Give us something to look forward to, new adventures.

I have learned that all things happen for a reason. I met a boy fell in love then found out he made bad choices. As a result I am alone again. But because I met him I went back to school and got my MBA. Now financially I may be a mess but I know that I am stronger than I ever thought possible.
