I am so envious of people with consistency in their lives. The only thing consistent about my own personal blogging, journaling, scrapbooking, or record-keeping is my inconsistency. So here's a post... because even my long lapses between blogs must be subject to my inconsistency.
I am sitting in my family room on a couch that I've had for a long time. I've lived in this house for almost 9 years, and as I look at my surroundings I realize that my days in familiar surroundings are numbered. Even the things that have always been my own will change to a mixture of the familiar and the unfamiliar. In just a few months, I'll be moving to Arkansas, where I'll be living with my children and my new husband, Craig, and his children. We are blending families, combining homes, and intertwining lives that have already experienced so many things. We are attempting with our greatest effort and commitment to bring two very separate and unique individuals into a singular relationship as husband and wife. Every day that reality gets closer... and I couldn't be happier.
I wrote about Craig a couple of years ago in this very blog, when we had only been dating a few months. Of course at the time I had no true sense that we would end up making a commitment like this to each other, but I realize that back then, all the signs were there. His honesty and integrity, his devotion and loyalty to family, his ability to know my feelings and gain my trust. And now, a little over 2 years later, and we are both ready to be single no more, but together.
So that's my biggest update for my blog. Maybe my inconsistency can turn into more consistency as my life takes this new path. I know there will be one thing that is consistent... love.
