I don’t like changes. I am coming to realize that when things change it can be hard, and there are lots of changes happening all around me all the time. Some changes are good and yet they can still be very difficult, like, for instance, a marriage or new baby. Some changes are good for some and not others, like a friend moving away. Some changes seem bad all around, like an illness or loss.

I am dealing with all of these types of changes. Josiah is a great baby, but adjusting to have two kids is still work and I’m not always sure what to do or how to manage. I, believe it or not, have lost my cool a few times and don’t like to not be in control and perfect. One of my closest friend is almost definitely moving to Boulder in a very short time. I know that our relationship won’t be the same. We’ll keep in touch, but it is never the same as when you meet together in person regularly. That’s really sad to me. I’m still trying to adjust to my sister moving across the country… Change is hard, but usually exactly what we need. Who would want to live a life that’s the same all the time? It’s great to make new friends and move on in what God has next for us. Obedience is better than security or comfort.

    I don’t like changes either. . .although I do handle them better when I’m rested. I had a hard time today with my power going out when I had an evening planned, to get things done with my husband. Might be the fact that I went to bed at 2am, finishing something on my to do list. Not sure how I’m going to cope when our friend moves to Boulder. Haven’t even gone there yet. . .
    I’m glad I rediscovered your blog. I like this window into your thoughts. You are one of my favorite people:)
