Holiday is over
Today is the last day of my hubby's holiday vacation, and I feel a little bit sad. We will miss him terribly. It's really wonderful to have him home longer, but duty calls. He has to go back to work. There are a lot of changes for us this year 2009. Matt is going to school next fall. We are still praying about it; home schooling gives the family great flexibility, but then it would be wonderful for him to learn to socialize with other kids. If we send him to school, we need a new car; and I am not excited to drive in this area(lots of crazy and jackal drivers). My hubby was coming home from work one evening, and he was at the stop light when all of sudden a car came very fast straight towards him and crashed his car. His car was smashed in to the dashboard, and it was a miracle that he came out in one piece; his car was totaled and it was impossible for someone to survive. It still gives me a chill every time I remember it. The Lord has been really gracious to us for providing his full protection. About driving, I don't think I can avoid it anymore, its another changes for me but hey I have Gods protection so lets do it. We were planning to move out of this area this year, but the housing market is very bad right now. Accepting the fact that we have to wait for another 5-7 years before moving out was not easy. We wanted to raise our kids on a small farm in a rural area where we can let them play in the yard without worrying about their safety. I think that the Lord has planned for us to stay here a little bit longer.
