last night

I am laying in the bed, typing on my iphone, and thinking about my last night in our Albany house. It's kinda sad, but exciting at the same time. Matt has been in Birmingham 3 weeks too long without his family. it'll be fun to reunite in our new place to call home.

I found this neat thing I was going to post but I can't copy and paste so it'll have to wait, but it's about how this home is our Bethleham. It's where our little family began. (I'll post it as soon as we get a computer hooked up.) This is a house with so many memories!! one of the first is from May 2003 when my sister and all of us got ready here for her wedding day. there have been baby showers and wedding showers. we also had game nights every Tuesday night for over a year. Believing God, by Beth Moore was studied here!! (do you remember the 5 points??) Christmases and many birthdays have been celebrated here. one of the most special things was, of course, bringing Bryan home from the hospital. many of his "firsts" happened right here!!

I can't wait to share with you the many memories our new home will have in store!!

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy!!

That's a very poignant post, Jamie. I'm going to miss that house, but the memories we made there will go with us. And like you said, we'll be making many more in our new house as well. Bittersweet.

Aww, sweet reply from Matt. I was going to say something down those lines, each home you live in will be stepping stones (milestones), with each one comes new memories, I say this because a house only becomes a home from the love which is in it. Seems like you guys have that for sure. Love, Aunt Sherry

Hey you guys- It is such a bittersweet time. That house was a foundation God laid for you during a very special time, and it's time for you to move on. Although I'm sitting here crying (like I've done every night this week!!), I'm thrilled for you all, and can't wait to see what milestones and foundation you will lay in B'ham. I'll miss you when I get to Albany, but I'm happy for you. Love you both!!!

Thanks for the tears, J! Sad but positive! We are considering a move (same city, different house), and your blog really made me think about everything this house I live in holds....so many memories.
I wish you all the very best!
