Life is overflowing with change these days.  It is filled with highs and lows, happiness and sadness.  I am very excited about our new adventure in Virginia, but it doesn't quite seem real yet.  I am in Utah while Andrew is there and it is very reminiscent of the Army deployments.  I find myself striving to be strong and make things happen all in the midst of being sad to leave friends and family.  I want to jump and cheer about things to come and new places, and I can cry at the drop of a hat at the thought of leaving people I love dearly.  I can be overjoyed one moment that we got the rental house we really wanted, and then completely frustrated that my bathroom and laundry room has been overtaken by a very large family of ants. It is such a challenging time, but I am so grateful for the people that have been here to look after me.  Whether it be taking care of my kids so I can work, pulling me away from the daily chores for a chat and a cup of coffee, just asking me how I am doing.  I am so grateful that I am blessed with true friends and a loving family.
