With You by My Side!

With you by my side I can do anything.
With you by my side I feel strong.
With you by my side I am safe.
With you by my side I don't fear the road ahead.
With you by my side I will have all I need.

As I had posted earlier we have many changes that are on the horizon for our family. I have struggled in moments when I begin to think about who I will miss and what we will be leaving. I know that this is what we are supposed to do but it doesn't mean that it will be easy, and yet as Jimmy and I were talking about our plans in the upcoming weeks I looked into his grey/green eyes and knew that at his side everything would be Ok.

I was once a very independent type, I had my own place, paid my own bills, came and went as I wanted with no one to discuss it all with. I was raising a little girl as a divorced Mom and thinking that it could very well be that way for sometime and I was OK with it. Then July 14th 2002 came and my whole life changed, it was the day that Jimmy called me after a few years without contact. I knew he was going to be my helpmate, my partner. I wasn't going to have to walk this road alone, he would be there to lift me on the bad days and I for him.

There are many uncertainties on how this will all unfold and yet I am not afraid, not with him as my husband, not with him as my best friend. Yes, there are things that will be so hard to leave that I may cry the entire drive out of Las Vegas, but with Jimmy there to wipe my tears I know that as long as I have him I have "Home" with me.

So far all we know is:
We will be moving to Colorado,
Jimmy will be going back to school
We have someone who will rent our Condo

What we don't know today:
When we are leaving
Where Jimmy will work
If the kids and I will go first
lots of other small details

How exciting! We would love to leave this town but I feel as you do. It would be sad all in the same sense to think of everyone you would miss. We definently need to keep in touch, I have enjoyed getting to know you! Best of luck to you on your new journey!!!

I'm really happy for your family! It'll be a great new experience- I'm sure! :)

Tom & Rachel said...

Yeah, Colorado! Good choice! You'll love it here. Change is definitely hard, but so exciting don't you think? I agree that as long as you have your little family you can go anywhere and be happy! Congrats on the quick decision!

You are a brave one, but yes, I know what you mean about your husband. There is just something about mine that lets me know we would be okay anywhere. Congratulations though, I think it sounds like it will be a great thing!! And all of us bloggers will still be here.
