Regular Gypsies

I must admit, I have come to not even mind moving. It has become somewhat of a comfort already to pack up all my belongings in a box and relocate. I think I used to hate change and was maybe not open to TRULY letting God take me wherever He wanted. Well God. Lesson learned...I hope (meek insertion). I guess by even admitting that I hope I've learned the lesson is an admission that I haven't. I truly want to be able to stand at any fork in the road and proclaim 'Bring it on!' Whatever you have for me...wherever you want us to go.
I think some of my hesitation comes from wanting something more consistent for my kids now. They don't really even know what it's like to have 'friends for life' yet. I want that for them. I also know, though, that their caravans are ready for excitement. They have an awesome adaptability that will help THEM in the gypsy adventures God will send them on in their lives. Who knows though, they may be SO good at it already that God will have to teach them something else, they may be stuck here now FOREVER...mwahaha!!! Be content where you are.
For my own recollection and for your amusement, here is a list of all the places Tim and I have lived since being married:

2008- Edmonton 6
2009- Drayton Valley, AB

1975- Edmonton 1
1978- Louisville, KY

For a personal Grand Total of 23.
Buy me a hoop ring and call me Esmerelda!

Hey, that was fun!! I think you've basically got the dates right! Every place was made a HOME because of the love we have for each other and that's the same for you. We've been content with what the Lord has provided each time. What a blessing!! Happy for you! Looking forward to 'see where you live', hopefully in October!
