Friends, Family and Feelings

It's less than a week to go
Til I leave our home behind
It's definitely too late to say no
No matter what excuses I might find

My friends are all rallying around
With playdates and support for Rach
Opportunities and help abound
Even if Mike's journey gets made late

The family will of course be fine
It'll be great for Rachel and Mike
But I'm still walking that fine line
Between joy and worry for my tike

I am equal parts excitement and sadness
Looking forward to the trip and all that it'll be
But dreading the leaving and causing distress
To God I hand all these feelings, be with them and me.

Moving is a exciting, scary adventure. Moving with kids - more so. You worry that they will make a smooth transition. Is sounds like your little famimly can face any challenges in the weeks ahead. Good luck in your new home.

Change is so matter if it's for the best...or if it's something you have to do.
