So ... it is a BEAUTIFUL day outside today. 75!! Ahh! I am going to take the kids to the park. Wish Matt was here to enjoy it with me.
Speaking of Matt, he's been transferred to Cortez, Colorado. (Still working for Safeway.) It's a town about an hour and a half north of here. He's commuting every day. Except tonight he asked me to find him a hotel room in Cortez because he doesn't get off work until 8pm, and then works tomorrow morning at 7am. Coming home would be pointless tonight. Poor guy. We're hoping he gets to find a new job. If he can't find a new job by the end of May, then I guess we're moving to Colorado. He can't keep commuting like this. Sure makes his days long. I appreciate that he's willing to drive back and forth so that he can see his kids, when the easy thing to do would just be to get a hotel for the week and come home on his days off. He's such a good Daddy. And husband.
My current facebook status says this : "Laura Allison just loves her husband. You know that feeling you got when you were a kid and you had a hard day at school (or somewhere) and ran home, got into your comfy, familiar house, and had a nice snack, cup of juice, and a big hug from Mom waiting for you? Yeah. That feeling of "Ahh, everything is going to be JUST FINE and I am safe and LOVED." feeling? That's how I feel every time he walks in the door from work. :)" ... and that just about sums up how I'm feeling about him right now. He's so supportive of me, so wonderful. I just love him to pieces and am so glad that God gave him to me. He is truly my soulmate and my other half and I have no idea what I'd do without him!
Back on the subject of the park again, I wish my friend Jana lived close so that her and her son Jakob could come and go to the park with us.
So ... In light of some recent events, I guess my husband and I will be moving on, spiritually speaking. It's a really long story, but I just feel like maybe we'd be better off at a different church. I'm really, REALLY sad to say that too, because I really have loved our church and have some wonderful friends there. I'm hoping that us leaving won't rip those existing friendships apart, but I feel it's important that we worship at a place where we feel like our scripturally-based concerns can be voiced and listened to, and if need be, conduct that doesn't line up with Scripture can be modified, in love, not in judgment. We're praying about it to make sure we make the right decision, but for now - even though it's painful, that's probably what we're going to do.
I'll post some pictures later, I think. :)
