It’s been about two weeks since my last post. In that time, I’ve let many blogworthy events come and go without mention: You know, little things like moving to a new city, starting a new job, converting from PC to Mac, starting a new church, and searching for a house.
Some of the reason for not posting is busyness, but the main reason is that I don’t want my last two posts to be forgotten. Life doesn’t stop. It won’t. It keeps moving. It does for everyone. It does for us too. And the more it moves, the farther away Anna seems. People go on with their lives and expect you to do the same. They’ll soon forget about her. Well, they might not forget her, but they certainly won’t think about her very much. And I really don’t expect that their life should stop. Even so, it’s hard for Tiffany and me to think about much else.
Yes, we’re happy about living closer to family. I think I’m going to really like my job. We’re happy about finding what we think is a great house, and we’re hoping the lady living there will accept our offer. All that is very good, but there is still a dark cloud hanging over us right now. And honestly, I’m not sure I’m ready for it to go away.
So please excuse the awkward pause. It might be around a little longer.
