I took this above photo a few weeks ago when Jeff and I were in Seattle for the weekend. We walked every morning to Pikes Market and had fresh pastries and watched all the vendors set up for the day. We had a great trip!
Jeff and I right now are on what we think is our last interview trip to discover where our next growing spot will be for our family ( and hopefully the last ) We have truly been blessed to go on so many alone trips over the past 6 months and discover new parts of the country, as well as each other.
I get a little emotional when I think of all that we have done to get us to this spot. 15 years of waiting, schooling, training, crying and working. I can't believe how different I am then when we started all this and I can't believe that what I thought I wanted is not at all what I want now.
We went to a congregation at the local church to get a feel for the church where we are interviewing. The building was beautiful - maybe the most beautiful building I have ever been in. The families so nice, friendly and we left with 3 invites to come to dinner. I feel incredibly blessed to have the choices we have right now. It is amazing to see life falling into place and wondering what it must be like to be Heavenly Father who knows the beginning and the end. He must have many times wanted to tell me "be patient you won't believe what is coming soon"
While we still don't know where we will choose, I feel blessed to have so many options to choose from and been given so many opportunities to grow and feel ready for what is next.
