This is the number of miles that I will be moving in just three and a half months! Recently, I have been having these homesick moments. Do you know what I mean? I used to have these moments when I was a little girl. I would be at school and I distinctly remember all of the sudden being homesick. I would get this weird feeling in the pit of my stomach and I remember the only thing I could think about was that I wanted to go home, I wanted to be with my parents. Maybe some of you think I'm weird but recently I have been having these moments when I think about moving allll the way to California.
You see, I have lived in the same exact house, on the same exact street, in the same exact town for my entire life! I never went away to college, I went to college in my hometown. Now in just three and half months I am not just moving out of my parents home but also moving 2,133 miles away!! That's crazy!
The other day I was just driving through my hometown and it just hit me... I'm leaving this....sooo much is going to change! I started to cry. Ever since then, as I drive I look around at everything... almost trying to soak it all up... knowing that my time here is almost up. Now, it's not just the town itself that I will miss. Most of all, I get sick to my stomach when I think about that day when I say goodbye to my Dad and Mom. Even while I am typing this I get that feeling. My parents are amazing and I am going to miss them soo much. Then there are my friends...and church...and coworkers...and families from work...all the people and things that are my world.
I'm sure some of you are thinking..."Wow, she doesn't want to move!" :) No, thats not it. I AM so excited about getting married and starting my family and life but it scares me! I know..it's part of life and it's part of "growing up" some would say, but for me it's going to be so much more than that. I'm going to miss everyone and everything that I have known for the past 22 years so much! I have had a WONDERFUL life so far and I have soo many people that I love that have become a part of it. I am so thankful for everything that God has given me! It's definitely going to be a HARD goodbye!
