It's a blustery day here in Idaho
and I'm cleaning the house like a mad woman
getting ready for our foster care home study later this week.
So many emotions whirling around in my little head
we've been preparing for this for just about a year
but I can't help but wonder
"are we really ready?"
what a giant leap to make
to go from just the two of us
to possibly 5!
That's the way life is though...
and I'm sure we will manage this new adventure
with the same spirit and teamwork
as we always have
Speaking of adventures -
Our very own Big Red has been featured by
an amazing blog from a young couple
who have thrown out conventional ideas about settling down
in the pursuit of finding the perfect place to call home.
I can't imagine living full time on the road
but who knows maybe Tiffany and her man
are onto something?
I mean if you can survive months on end in a travel trailer
it seems to me like your marriage could survive just about anything!
Not to mention how many of us end up living somewhere
we really don't belong?
Be it family or the ol' ball in chain, aka your job
most of us never really got the opportunity
to find that place where we really belong.
I know all to well what that is like -
We ended up in Portland, Oregon
because of family and job opportunities
we purchased a home and thought we would be happy
but before long
we were just pretending...
and so when we got the chance
we made a decision
to try something new
and we are so much happier
but I can only imagine what we might have found
if we had taken a similar road as Tiffany and her husband
and tried to find our "perfect match".
Anywho - there's some food for thought :)
