Are We There Yet?

Sometimes I have a really hard time comparing myself to where other people are at in their lives. I know in my heart that everyone has their own journey (as cheesy at that may sound) and we don't all do things on the same timeline. I hate to say it but I get a little jealous sometimes thinking about my friends that are already homeowners, for example. Granted, we didn't buy a house in Augusta for multiple reasons-we weren't sure about job security and the housing market. In the end we moved and didn't have to worry about selling a house, so it turned out to be a good thing. I'm so ready to move into a place that will be our place for a very long time. A place where we can paint the walls, and I won't have to pack my stuff up again for a while and the kitchen will be my kitchen. And still sometimes I wonder why we don't own a home yet, or when it will be time to start a family. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
I know that we are at where we are right now, because of the choices that we have made and the plans that God has for us. I believe that everything happens for a reason. I feel like we are on the right path to being where we are supposed to be. It was kind of a leap of faith to pick up and move to Gainesville and I'm really glad that we have. I just have to be patient and keep praying and know that Matt will find a job soon! It feels like our kind of town here, a place where we could stay for a very, very long time and be happy.
Now, I just have to remind myself to be happy where I am at and quit worrying about all the details, and where everyone else is at. It's a piece of cake, right?

  1. I'm glad to know someone else feels this way. I've felt sort of stagnant and stuck for a while, too. I know things will happen. I know we'll eventually leave Statesboro. We'll find a great town to call our own. We'll buy a house. Have a yard where we can plant flowers. Have kids. But it's still hard in the meantime. Thanks for posting this. It made me feel a little better knowing I'm not the only one.
