Girls Write Out
Thursday, June 30, 2011

Things are happening at my house! After thirty-eight years serving in education, hubby has officially retired! Whoohoooo!!! He's finally getting around to the honey-do list I made for him our first year of marriage. :-)

The truth is he already has another job--this time, doing what he absolutely loves--working with computers. On a part-time basis, he will be teaching all things Mac at a Christian school here in town and he can hardly wait! My techie has reached his dream! I have absolutely NO techie abilities, so I can hardly wait for him to help me with my Mac! :-)

My health is improving daily--and I thank you sincerely for all the prayers! I NEVER take them for granted!! If my body cooperates, I could be done with chemo in three more treatments! Whoohooo!!

Life is full of changes. Some exciting, some not so much. Some days it doesn't bother me, other days, God intervenes so I can get out of bed. But I'm learning, day by day, to embrace the changes life brings our way--one change at a time.

What about you? How do you handle changes--run away screaming? Go on a shopping spree? Munch your way through the refrigerator?

I love routine, so it takes me a while to make a mental shift when change comes. Lots of prayer and chats with my girls help me through those times. A little chocolate doesn't hurt either.

Congrats to Jim!

I'm so glad you're doing better Di! Yay God!! I love your smile in the picture.

Since we recently had a big change -- moving -- I was excited and sad. I didn't handle it quite as well as I thought. I've moved a lot in my life and always embraced it with excitement, though sentimental about my old neighborhood or friends or house.

This time I cried. We pulled away from our old house for the last time on moving day and I just broke down. I was going to miss that place where we had so many good memories, prayer meetings. Miss my canine neighbors. And my McDonalds and Publix...

It took me a few weeks to adjust. Really. And I love this house. Love my new office, but I really missed my old house.

Change is exciting. Change is hard.

Wonderful news about Jim! And wise to get into something else to keep him active.

I avoid change. I love, love vacations, but I resist making them because they are a change in my life. Because of Mel's crazy schedule--never working the same day twice in two weeks--our lives are already crazy enough. I couldn't take much more. We've lived in the same house since we married, and will probably be here until we die.

After 11 years on this side of the city, my DH and I are planning to move to the north side. He will be starting nursing school next school year and we cannot afford the gas to commute. So the move has become a regular part of our conversations. I don't want to move though it's prudent to do so. I'm a stick-in-the-mud when it comes to my home and I don't want to change a thing.

But only two things are certain in this life: death and taxes. That means change is inevitable. Often God is our only constant and we have to hang onto Him with our fingernails as we dangle above the abyss of doubt and despair. So I pray like crazy, cry a lot, and allow my DH to work his hiney off getting us moved. (He's a real keeper, I tell ya!) In the end, I will love my new home and will settle in to clinical rotations and exams. Ahhh, life!!

What a sweet post, Ruthie, even as you face changes. I guess change is a challenge for most of us. But you're right, God is our only constant.

Praying for you all as you go through life's changes. We'll help each other get through them. :-)

Jel, so glad you liked my book! Thanks for the encouragement!

Hot doggies!!! And will you lend his expertise out to all the other Mac techieless among us? LOL Tell him congratulations on the retirement and the new job. That sounds like an oxymoron. LOL

What a blessing to have a season of good changes after going through storm after storm :)

How do I cope? All of the above! I am such a shopped/eater that it's kind of ridiculous. My hubby will always give me a few hours to splurge, then reels me back in with reality and reminding where I need to find my strength.
