A Restful Night

Carson slept really well last night!  He only woke up twice and they were for a very short time.  He barely nursed.  There was no tossing and turning and screaming in his sleep.  It was so nice.  I decided to just be grateful for the sleep we so desperately needed.  Not sure if it will happen again and because I do not want to be disappointed, I'm not expecting last night to be the end of our sleepless nights.  I hope it happens again, but I'm not going to get emotional if tonight is another one of our usual nights. 

Despite getting rest last night, I was pretty emotional today.  We will be officially from our home June 1st-ish.  It really hit me today how soon that is.  I love my home.  I know eventually our new home will be just as great but it will take a few years.  We put so much work into our present home to make it the refuge that it is and the idea of starting all over again is hard to swallow.  Although, once we do eventually fix it up to be "us,"  it will be a much nicer space so we have that to look forward to. 

I just hate letting go of things that I've loved.  This has been our first home and will always have a special place in my heart.  I'm not sure yet if moving two blocks away is a positive or negative aspect.  We'll get to drive by it often, but then if it is not kept up to our standards, then we'll have to see that often as well. 

We are probably going to rent it out for awhile so I guess I don't have to say my final good-byes just yet.

  1. I can't believe you're moving, and so soon! I'll miss your little house too - it's such a special place. God is good though, and He will lead you as you make your new home. Good luck, friend!
