When we moved from Dothan I was so confused as to why we were having to leave a place that felt so perfect for our family. We were so established there. We had made it our home. After a short while I was able to see where Madison could be a town that we would be happy in. We have enjoyed exploring the town and the fun things to do. Maybe it wasn't so bad here after all.
Last Thursday Shay received word that his account here would be closing June 1st. That means we will be moving, AGAIN! Any guesses as to where we might be moving??? DOTHAN!! Have you ever had one of those, "Seriously God?" moments? Just utter confusion. Thats how I would describe my feelings toward this situation. Confused. Don't get me wrong I'm thrilled to be heading back to Dothan. Dreading moving but if I have to move, again, I'm thankful it is back to Dothan. It is frustrating that exactly 29 days after I sold my house we found out we are moving back. It just doesn't make much sense to me that we would move here for just 4 months to turn around an move back. I will say that moving here has been a financial blessing and maybe that was the purpose for this little whirlwind. At any rate the Nichols family will be on the move again, very soon.
As you can imagine our current situation has my little girls out of sorts. It is obvious to them that things are very unsettled so I am anxious to get this problem resolved. Mary Selwyn has struggled the most with all the transitions, so while it is clear that we watch entirely too many fairy tale princess movies, it is sweet that she wants to wish on stars. Oh to be young again and believe that things are just that easy. Us grown-ups will just continue to trust in the Lord, even when we don't understand.
MSN has been asking regularly to wish on a star before bed. Once she wished, "for my heart to be happy." That is not only my wish but my prayer for both of my girls no matter where we are.
