And Life Goes On......

...but not without changes. Our lives were forever changed with the death of Grandma Hauer. Little did we know how much. But here we are just two months later and making a major life change.

We are moving home to Michigan.

It's hard to put into words how I feel about this, because my feelings change by the hour. But there is just no looking back now. The moving truck will be here in just 3 short weeks.

Many stars aligned so perfectly that we could not look away. A plan and a path presented itself and while it took me much longer than some to realize it, I eventually came to a similar conclusion.......this was meant to be.

And so it will be.

Much work to be done here before we go, so this may be my last post for awhile.

I would love your prayers for safe travel, as well as encouragement as we face our new lives.

Next post from Michigan, where Grandma Hauer's house will be our new home. Thankfully it is summer. The weather will be just one issue that we will have to adjust to.

Signing off from Florida..........

PS.......Yes, we visited Kennedy Space Center last weekend. :-) One place I wanted Mailia to see before we leave.

Oh...I knew this was in the works & it will be so nice for Malia to be near her cousins. I think you are right, the signs were just all there for you. Still, it has been comforting knowing you were a "neighbor".....

I have some friends near Lansing (they were in my FU travel grp when I got Lindsi) will you be anywhere near there? I can put you in touch with them.

Shirley, be happy. You are going home to be close to family. I hope that some of the stress you have been under the past couple of years will be lived.

I will keep in touch via email.

Good luck and enjoy this new adventure.

Susan and Kate

No matter where you are, you'll always be close :) Thank you so much for the update. I have been missing you! Have a safe trip.

Hi Shirley. I'm one of the few who can probably relate to this. We are in the midst of doing the exact same thing except cross-country. You bet you have our prayes. Please pray for our house to sell in the US. You all will be just fine. I know it. You will be missed though.
