Out with the Old

Today is K's 10th birthday....Next post will be about that. What a great girl! How lucky I am to be her Mama.

But, as I look at changing my profile to put "10-year-old" in there, I realize that it is time to change the whole thing. What was reality a couple of years ago no longer is. I don't want to forget what it said or how I felt or how my life was. So, a personal remembrance post just for me: the old profile:

Just a little about me

I have a good life
I am an LDS SAHM of three kids (9-year-old girl, 7-year-old boy, and 2-year-old boy). I love life...but sometimes let the little things get me down. I try to do too much with the small amount of time that I have been given. I am so grateful for the multitude of blessings that are mine. Even with the frustrations of living, I feel I have the life of my dreams. I also co-own a chiropractic clinic with my husband. It is a lot of work to be self-employed, but it is fun to work together on it!
And my old favoritest picture ever. It is time to take it down.

Once again, it is so hard to say goodbye. Goodbye to the life of my dreams. Hello to the unknown. Goodbye to a marriage supposed to last for Eternity. Hello to the unknown. Goodbye to the clinic I helped build from scratch. Hello to the unknown. Looks like "unknown" and I will become good friends. Good thing what is unknown to me is not unknown to God. Good thing I am in good hands...His hands. Good thing that I can face the unknown with sure faith that I will be okay. For that I am truly blessed.

I love you my dear friend and wish you a good new life. And, yes, the Lord know all. He especially loves you and will be with you always.

As hard as it is, sometimes starting fresh with a clean slate is a wonderful opportunity to learn something new and enjoy blessings that you had no idea were coming your way.

I so admire your faithfulness!

(the word verification is "bless"!)

I just wanted to tell you that although my life is going down a different road then yours right now, I still feel like you hit it right on the nail-- We all have so many "unknowns" in life-- some more scary then others. It is a comfort that the Lord really does know what is before us and knows how to help us through it.
