The last few days have been a bit hard for our family. Michael's job came to an end, and a possible move to a new job looks to be on the horizon. There are many bright spots in the new possibility, but that being said, it also brings sadness to leave what we thought to be our home. Our children aren't one bit happy. It seems as if we are putting out fires hourly between teenagers that are having moving issues and a 5 year old that swears that he isn't leaving THIS farm. Lucky for us, we can still pick him up and put him where we want him. Due to the fact that I was needing a voice of reason to help settle me, I called my middle brother. He is Mr. Reality and I knew I needed a good dose of reality. He told me right up front that I should be thankful that I wasn't married to an average bear instead I had a Nuclear Engineer bear for a husband which would make it easier for him to find a job. I knew he was right. He also told me that my kids would adjust and it would all be fine after the initial storm. I wonder if he would like to come weather the storm for me... If you think of us, please pray for our family. It would be much appreciated!
The bright spot of the day was that while I was doing dishes I glanced out and saw a bear on our property. I started yelling, and the whole family made fun of me. They were sure I saw a black dog or maybe our black calf, but most definitely not a bear. I made them all stand on the deck and watch. After just a few minutes the bear showed himself again, and to every body's amazement I was right. It was a bear. Of course I was too busy proving my point and then celebrating my victory with a victory dance right there on the deck to get any pictures. But take it from me...it was a bear. The bear was smaller than Missy, but it was a bear none the less!!
grace and peace,
