The girl and I made it safely to Texas. She's an amazing traveler, and made many friends along the way. Any person within her sight became a possible "high five" opportunity. She's a funny one that girl of mine.
As the plane began it's takeoff from Nashville, I said, "Say bye bye to Nashville sweetie." Wow, mistake. Tears welled up in my eyes as a flood of memories came to mind. It's hard to put into words how I am feeling right now. Mainly because it still feels like I'm merely visiting because we won't move into our house until next week, and partly because I'm still trying to process everything.
What I know to be true is that we are blessed, richly. God did a good, very good, thing during our time in Tennessee, and I know He will continue to do so here. Our lives are filled with some of the most amazing human beings ever created, people who serve well, love deeply, and are filled with joy. They have been our family away from home and have cared for us well. Life is beautiful, thanks to the people in it.
