There is so much to share, I hardly know when to begin.
First of all this week we were given our closing date: Jan.30th we do
final walkthrough and get the keys to our new home! I’m excited,
and scared, and psyched. I hope the kids will be ok and not go
all loopy in a scary new house. It’s awesome.
We also learned after walking through our home – with the walls up,
so now we can really see it, lots of sunlight, gorgeous – that it’s
only 15-20 minutes from Whitehall – a major strip. I’m very
excited about that. We’re by LIFE! Cool.
Secondly, my mother got accepted into a very NICE Alzheimer’s only
facility called Praxis. She’s going in on Monday or
Tuesday. My sister said it’s not like a nursing home at all –
it’s much better. She’ll be a half hour from my new home, so most
likely I’ll either have to drive the highway or learn the route without
the highway. I’m so happy for her and Dad. Of course, it
will be hard for them to adjust, but I just know they are going to
thrive, both of them. I have hope, finally!
Amelia had her IEP this week and the teachers said she is doing very
well. Yay!! They are teaching her 3-4 word sentences with
prompts and photos. They are going to forward all her stuff to
the new IU in my new county, so all will be taken care of. I’ll
be sad to not be with them anymore. The new teacher this year is
FABULOUS. She’s young and she just has this aura that allows
little kids to respect AND to flock to her, a kind of firm gentleness
that flows from her. And she’s implemented new ideas that work
really well. SO, I prayed that Amelia’s new teachers will be even
Business is fabulous too! Landed two new projects, am wrapping
up my first Flash production and first design since forever, and lost a
troubling client. I’m opening my mind about both tithing and
trust in God for abundance.
Finally we MAY have a great solution to our home problem.
Still no buyers or renters, but I’m hoping that our solution works
perfectly. It’s, in my opinion, a Godly solution, but we’ll see.
I do truly believe that a lot of this is happening because I put it
in my mind, after a few sessions with tears, to be open and accepting
to change – specifically, my relocation. In fact, where we are
moving is best to put me close to Mom. I battled that inner voice
for a bit, but the Voice of Truth told me to trust that God has placed
us in Macungie, and amazing things would happen there. I believe
PS – If I’m scarce the rest of the month, you now know why!!
