We're all still here, still kicking, still alive.
I am amazed by the people that came out to help us, and totally humbled by the whole experience. Asking for help is hard for me so when people we haven't seen in years volunteered to come help, I didn't quite know how to express our gratitude.
Lunch and homemade cookies seemed so inadequate. The real thing that I've taken away from living out of the state for two years is that family is so important...and while some people let you down (it happens all the time), there are SO many people who will show up for you when they really have no reason to...just because they're good people.
Those are the people to focus on. The ones who love and lift up...that's the kind of person I want to be. I want to be someone who just shows up for someone in need...as the one who has been in need, I've seen what a huge blessing this is...
For me and for our whole family. We are now IN the new house (pictures to follow...) but we're definitely not settled yet. We'll get there. Eventually...
Today I am just filled with gratitude. Overwhelmed with the blessing of good friends and family. Thankful that even though this move totally STUNK in so many ways...it was stressful and hugely expensive and overwhelming (and still is in many ways) but more than that, it restored my faith once again.
I'm just really thankful.
And I'm also BEYOND grateful that people are sharing about my book being 99 cents for Kindle and Nook. HOW do I say thank you for that? It means everything. To a writer, the best thing you can do is share, chat, gab about their books...and I'm HUGELY blessed by it.
Once I process this move, I'm sure I'll have more to say...I'm chatty that way... but for now, I just have two words.
To everyone who helped us move, expecting nothing in return... to everyone who shared about my book...to everyone who prayed us through the chaos.
