Escorting me and the girls to our new home was my mother and mother in law, who kept me company on the road trip down. Thank the Lord for those mothers, they made this trip so much smoother and despite having a few minor hang ups along the way, I made the transition with very little screaming and as few tears as possible. In fact I haven't cried as much as I expected, hahaha. I know I am a terribly emotional woman, but the Lord had prepared me so far in advance for this move, that by the time I arrived in SC, I was just thankful to finally be here.

We like to feed the geese around sunset, they will eat right out of your hand
and then proceed to hiss at you.
Then when it was time to take the kids back to Children's Church, I dropped them off and hid in the bathroom and cried a whole lot more. When I came out of my bathroom stall though, the Lord set it up that I would meet two other woman who loved on me and encouraged me and told me of their own hard transitions to the Morning Star Fellowship. It was divine for sure. It at least helped me to stop crying for a bit.
Back in my seat I listed to the Father's Day message and only sniffled and teared up a couple more times and then finally it was time to go eat lunch. Whew, by then I was emotionally exhausted.
It wasn't that the service was bad or anything, but I was missing IHOP so much and thinking of all my favorite things that I had left behind in KC. It is hard to be without all my mom friends and to watch my children asking for their little friends too.
Since then though, it has been getting better and I've met several other moms and already been invited to a mom's gathering this coming Thursday (just a small group that meets in a home). Although I'm hesitant to put myself out there and try to make new friends, the Lord is so good to me, and has already provided a couple moms to ease me back into fellowship. He is just that good!

So I would write more, but I feel as though this post doesn't really have a definite point, so I should probably stop before it sounds like rambling. I will hopefully post again soon about our mountain top adventure, and then more on the house, but for now, know that I am thinking of all of you my friends, and missing you more than I could tell you.
Hugs from SC!
