I am alive.
I have weathered this storm and the skies are clearing.
A LOT has happened since the last time I posted so I am going to make this long story short as best as I can.
After many nights of crying, being homesick and second guessing myself I finally began to see where I was and the good that was all around me.
Sarah is blossoming, she adores being outside getting dirty in the back yard or playing in sand at the beach. Her speech is still an issue but slowly her words are coming around. I think that was a major turning point for me, to see my daughter just run around, be free and develop such loving relationships with the G family.
We SOLD our house in record time, 2 weeks!
We decided to rent a house instead of buy, not knowing enough about the different area's in and around SC made us weary of jumping in to a new home. We signed a lease and get the keys this Friday!!
Husband got a transfer down here! He Starts the 3rd!
I didn't really grasp the blessing that is my in-laws. I knew they were nice, I knew they loved me as their sons wife but that they didn't really know me. I was terrified to move in with them, although I have been Mrs.G for almost 6 years, they were still strangers. We were given the amazing gift of time and now, I can say that they know me, and that they love me for me.
I can say that the Saturday's spent on the beach made this easier, it really did. I would have moments when I was standing on the beach, or crossing the ocean on the bridge that I would smile and say " I live here."
I have started singing in a choir again and have found a home church. Husband and I get to have a meeting with with Pastor as soon as we are settled. It feels good to be apart of such a tremendous community.
I am falling in love with my new city, Head over heels really. My bones still ache for Ohio because that will always be my comfort zone, my hometown. I still can't believe that I moved, I dreamed of it when I was young, granted my dreams where much grander, NYC with my name in lights on Broadway. I never thought in a million years I would end up in the land of pines, the Low Country. I think my new dream of beaches and sweet tea will suit me just fine.
