MIAMI stINKs

Get it? Ink? Haha . . . I just crack myself up :)

But yes, Miami stinks. Maybe not literally, I do not know, as I have never been and guess what?! . . . I probably never will.

I don't want to go into details, but, Miami is not happening. I've known now for a good week and still it hasn't sunk in totally. I was prepared for this huge move - mentally, emotionally, physically and even financially. It fell through, for a good cause, which I'll tell later, but indeed it did fall through.

I totally 100% believe in things "not being in our hands" and that "things are meant to be" and that "God in in control", but I also believe that it's ok for me to be sad and ok to be a little angry. However while feeling this way, I do still know that good things are to come. I just have to pick myself up slowly from this letdown, how ever long that may take and in whatever way that is. And I have to think positively and have hope that there really is an awesome future for us somewhere. I can honestly say, though, it's not here on Westlawn, so we are figuring out what the next months and years might hold. Cross your fingers for us.

Now it's time to pick myself up, to get my business back up (I had not booked hardly any weddings for 07) and to enjoy life how it is. We never know what tomorrow will bring, but we also never know if we will even see tommorrow. So we have to enjoy every single moment and hope for sunny days ahead even though they might not be on those white sandy beaches on the coast of Miami anymore.

Wow! What a rollercoaster ride it has been for you and your family. Yes, whatever is meant to be is meant to be. Who knows what will come next. It's all good though, Val. Come visit!!! Love ya. :)

God does have a plan for you guys. I promise. In the meantime, we have beaches here. (hint, hint)

It will all work out! And, things happen for a reason and they happen in God's time, you are absolutely right! It's hard to take at times though. Hang in there!

Val,
I'm glad you know in your heart that there is something better awaiting you in the future. But, yes, it would be disappointing.
Is this what your big news was that you mentioned in your poll?
Praying for you...

I also agree that things happen for a reason, but I'm happy to see how optimistic you and Niel are with all of this news. Good luck with it all...and I am happy you will be around a little longer!!!

I'm sorry for the fall out, however, I'm kind of excited because now we will have time to hang out!!!! *sorry for my selfishness* :)

Val, that's me said...

Thanks everyone :) It's been a very strange roller coaster ride, that's for sure. Thank you for still wanting me here. Makes me feel so very loved. You all are super :)
