I’ve for months been pondering a tough decision about what to do about my mother. Her health is failing and she is scheduled for surgery after the new year. Looking at what is the most feasible thing to do I have decided that I will move to New Orleans to be where I can take care of my Mom. I will be leaving behind a Good Job, some Good Friends, and Family. I will be going into the unknown and it is both exciting and scary at the same time. As of this writing it is still unclear exactly how I am getting there but there will be a way. I will make my move sometime by mid January.
I lived in New Orleans before and not very far from where I’ll be living when I get there. I feel like there are a lot of opportunities for me there and I also feel I’m more ready to accept them. I grasp this opportunity with a smile on my face. I do not expect it to be easy as nothing worth ever getting is. I just have a good feeling about it.
I will miss everyone I am parting ways with. For some of us we have been through a lot and others well we at least have shared a laugh. My Dad and my Step mom I will miss the most. It’s nice having your family in the same town with you. I will certainly miss coming over to visit with them. God has blessed me with so many people whom care for me. Friends, Church Family, and Others. I will miss my co-workers. They have been my work family for the last 6 years. They have worked beside me, we have laughed together, we got things done. We get crap from everyone and take it and move on. I can only hope to get half as good as a work family as I will be leaving. I give you all my Respect.
God has a funny way of doing things and I have to admit I don’t always like his methods. I love his results but the methods hmm. I take him with me and hope you keep him with you. No matter how good or bad your life is going we all need to look up and be thankful. Someone always has it worse and sometimes even better.
The worst thing about this whole move is that no matter how it goes I am going to loose two of the most important members of my family. Dakota and Daisy My dogs. The landlord is against me bringing them so I have to give them up to a good home. Dakota is a malteese and Daisy is a Papyon. They are both loving animals and they have loved me unconditionally for the past few years that I have had them.
I do look forward to seeing some familiar face’s and places though. Getting to eat my favorite foods in the world. And least we forget one of the biggest party’s in the world the Mardi Gras. All and all the History is what I really look forward to.
Being both excited and scared I can say that I’m keeping a positive attitude about it all. Yes I’m very sad I will be loosing my two best friends but I just feel God has a purpose for this and its really just up to me to let go so that I can get what he has planned which is probably so much more rewarding than anything I can think of.
Just remember when a truly tough decision comes your way to always take your time (when applicable) to make the best informed decision you can. Thank you all for sharing this part of my life with me. God Bless.
