Dios recompensa a los que son limpios de corazón.  La hipocresía, el vivir pendiente de lo que los demás tienen.  La soberbia y la avaricia nunca llevan a nadie a ninguna parte.  Cuando uno comienza desde cero, sabiendo que las cosas no van a ser fácil, sabiendo que el camino es bien cuesta arriba y aun así uno comienza a caminar, a correr, sin dudar, con la mente bien fija en la meta final, entonces es cuando las cosas comienzan a tomar forma.

Muchas veces en la vida uno duda, uno no entiende el porque de las cosas.  Uno cuestiona a Dios, uno llora y grita, uno se siente destrozado, sin energías para continuar.  Cuando uno se deja llevar, que consecuencias tiene ese dejadez? Cuando uno deja de luchar, de creer, de tener fe, que consecuencias tiene esa dejadez?  El mundo esta lleno de oportunidades, Dios no nos da mas de lo que podemos cargar, uno tiene que atreverse. Uno tiene que buscar la forma de reinventarse para echar pa’lante.

El mundo ha cambiado tanto, y continua cambiando. Solo tienes dos opciones o te quedas estancado, cómodo, en lo mismo o decides cambiar. El cambio no tiene que siempre ser visto como algo negativo. Ser positivo ante cualquier adversidad es la clave para sobrellevar momentos tumultuosos.  Cambiar de manera de pensar, la manera en que se ve la vida, de profesión, de actitud ayuda a mantener un balance en el modo en que se vive día a día.  El mundo cambia constantemente, no temas al cambio, reinventarse y aprende a vivir de manera diferente, una vez aceptes que las cosas ya no son como eran 20 anos atrás, podras comenzar a vivir nuevamente.

Keys in Hand!!!

We have the keys!!! 17098682_1282456815163586_216260028449747238_n

We finally bought a brand new home in South Carolina.  We have the keys!!! Today they installed the new refrigerator and my new kitchen looks amazing.  That was a major step into our new adventure.  Now, in 10 days I will be driving to SC with all our wonderful pets and children. Well, let me rephrase that, Jason will be driving with JJ and the cats and then Janie and Lucky will be riding with me. So freaking happy!!!

Now, once we get to SC I have to get the kids settled in school and start making the new house our new home.  We were a little bummed out that we could not find a new brick construction in the area we wanted to move into, but I can care less about the brick part, I love my new southern home, is perfect, spacious and with a huge fenced-in yard for Lucky to destroy, I mean, enjoy 🙂

We have other things to buy and a house to sell in Mississippi, but I know God has everything under control, so no worries.  We will be together again, sooner than we planned, but it’s been too much time apart for the family.  We thrive when we are together, with all of our different personalities, likes and dislikes, so, we are very much ready to mingle every day again.

I am so blessed…thank you, Lord, for making my wishes come true and for blessing me with the best family (not perfect, just great) anyone could ever have…

As I listen to the bird’s chirps…and the rain falling…

I can’t help but to smile,  my mind took my back to SC…to the beauty of the Carolinas.  I can’t help but wonder what Lucky’s reaction would be when she first encounter a squirrel.  What is my puppy going to do with all the backyard to run around?  I can imagine my puppy smiling big, running and digging, then running some more.  Now that the new house is all fenced in, I can have my Lucky free from her leash.  

I am also trying to decide what flowers/plants I want to plant in the new place.  I am eager to start our vegetable garden (only tomatoes, peppers and zucchini), and all the possibilities of having a huge fenced in backyard.  Hubs and I have some ideas to expand the patio area, we just have to decide whether to hire someone to do the work ourselves (I am getting a bit older, so my desire to do heavy work is pretty much none, but, we’ll see). 

There are some silly priorities I have when I get to SC.  I must indulge in some ribs from Ronnie’s Ribs in Elgin, I also need to have some fried chicken from Rush’s and get my groceries from the IGA or Elgin’s Food Lion. Yes, somethings will never change! I love the staff at those two grocery stores, so why change it. 

I am looking forward seeing my new home for the 1st time, although I found the house online, I have yet to see it in person.  Hubs and I have been together for a while now, so he knows what I like and dislike, so I trust him 100 percent. After all, he found our home in Mississippi and he did an outstanding job! 

But, most of all, I am looking forward to having my husband with us.  It does not matter how strong a person is, a husband/father belongs with his wife/children. We are all looking forward to our togetherness and to start our new chapter in SC.  Once we are settled, I know it will take months for that, I do hope to see the mountains and maybe even the beach, like a weekend getaway.  We just have to pray our house in Mississippi will sell within a reasonable time, so we have one thing less to worry.

A lot os happening this year, like I know the year is going to go so quick.  The move, Janie’s 16th birthday, JJ getting his permit, hopefully, a new job for me…I mean that’s a lot…a lot of things coming our way…and we are truly blessed.
