LBM: Emotion Rollover

So. This was what started, around three this afternoon. My ex-husband showed up and drove the truck for me to the house, and then friends started pouring in to offer their help. It started to rain, but hey, what did I expect?

The truck filled up waaaay faster than believable, and I was tearfully trying to cull things in the driveway on what was “have to keep” and “will let go”- so much so that the neighbor had even opened her garage and they were moving things to store. It’s only a 16′ truck, but my some miracle, a three bedroom house fit. I’m calling it the Tardis Truck.

What you’re looking at here is the best Home Teacher on the planet, front and center, and the most amazing group of friends who have loved and supported me and my kids. I get emails from so many kind people telling me how they are cheering me on and supporting us from afar— these are the hands who have held us up with the grace of your prayers.

Tomorrow we roll. Stay tuned. Thank you for loving us from afar.

  1. Oh my. I don’t know whether my gut is clenching in fear or relief! I shudder to think how traumatic your day was, culling in the driveway… Been there, done that. I still cringe just thinking about it.

    The truck does fill far faster than one would think. I am glad it was loaded with the help of such loving and good friends, and that you will be on your way! The drive will seem endless at times, but still – it will be a piece of cake compared to the past few months! Best of luck, my friend. Be safe and be happy.
