Your home is where you hang your hat, or home is where the heart is . Doesn't matter where, doesn't matter how big and how small. How fancy or how down to earth your home is your dwelling place to make lasting memories. We purchased our dwelling place 5 years ago. It was not a good decision from the start. We knew from the start and did it anyways. I was a much different person 5 years ago. The American dream was something I was going to accomplish no matter what! Then our son died and everything in my life was changed. The Lord opened my heart as raw as it was and performed open heart surgery, It hurt like crazy. It was very necessary to bring me to the place I am right now. I look back at that person and I want to cringe when I think about her and how disillusioned she must have been with what God really wanted for her life.
Fast forward to this stage of our lives...we are needing to move! I'm sparing the details to respect chief. It been a hard VERY HARD and trying situation. More for chief as he is the head of the household and feels all the pressure of trying to support his family. We both feel we would rather have a happy house even if its small and have all our kids need meet, than to try to pinch every penny to keep a home we don't need and could not afford in the first place!
Really no brainier for me to come up with right, but for men this is really a hard concept, they feel like they have failed, not matter how many times I release it from chief. This will have to be a God peace for him. I think God has had to teach both of us some good lessons.
This is where Georgia comes in. We are leaving this weekend to scout it out. Chief has an interview on Tuesday before our flight. We make the decision when we come back, if we start our lives over here just in another home, or all together in another place, I pray it wont be for another few months..this mama, can only handle so much change!
Crazy times at the Teabos, but we convent your prayers as we go scout out the land. I have interviews at schools also, and will be speaking with principals to check things out. For sure I will be scouting out neighborhoods, schools, doctors and stores ;).
If you are from Georgia, I will be scouting out Roswell, Alphretta, Marietta, Acworth. Should I be cheking any other towns/citys out?
