My best friend moved out today. Our house becomes less like a home as rooms become empty and boxes take over. What it is now is not what it's been; not my home filled with love, late night talks, meals on the porch. But that home still exists in my heart, memory, and story.
I've been reorganizing, cleaning and packing. Ross & I can start moving things into our new apartment on June 6. Obviously, we wont actually be moving in until July 11, when we get back from the honeymoon. My parents are also moving, so whenever I go home, it wont be the same either. But I'm actually getting excited about living out of my car for the next 46 days.
Now begins the vagabond stage of my life...I'll move with the wind and travel with only what I need. I plan to exercise daily, read a book per week, prepare for the big day, and enjoy time with friends in new and old places and appreciate them all the same. O ya, and look for a job. Mostly, I hope to listen to God's voice and seek His plan for me. And so begins my sabbatical.
