The end of a decade, but the start of an age.

I have reached a new chapter of my life. This chapter is definitely one of the most scary, stressful times of my life. There are so many new and exciting things happening that sometimes I find that my head is totally spinning.

First change. I moved. I left Saint George. Saint George has been my home for seventeen years. I grew up there. I know where all the restaurants and businesses are. I know the college campus. I put my things in the car and drove up the freeway 49 miles to Cedar City to go to school at SUU. Cedar City is cold and unfamiliar and small. There is not a doubt in my mind that this is exactly where I am suppose to be. I am so grateful that I find it is constantly reaffirmed to me that I am in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.

Second change. Even though this hasn't happened yet, it is so close I can taste it. Qualyn is coming home. He flies in February 15th at 9:30 P.M. What do you do when the thing you have been waiting for is actually going to happen? If anyone has the secret please give me a call! I have never been so excited and nervous all at once. Even in all of these emotions, I know things will become comfortable again quickly. He is my rock. My constant. And the one who knows me way better than I know myself. I couldn't be more happy that he is finally coming back.

These two things that really don't seem so drastic will change everything. I know by moving I will meet people who I need as well as people who need me. I completely believe that each person that comes into your life has a specific purpose. I could easily make a list of people who have changed my life and the list continues to grow. The Lord is aware of the things we need. Today I found this quote.
"God does watch over us and does notice us, but it usually through someone
else that he meets our needs." — Spencer W. Kimball

I am grateful for a loving Father in heaven who knows me personally and sends exactly what will meet my needs by the perfect means. I am excited for this new page to turn in my life and even though its a little unnerving for a worry wart like me I can't wait to see what it brings!
