We’re setting off on our epic Texas adventure in two weeks. Two weeks from tonight, actually. We’ll be leaving Missouri behind – 35 years of being a Missourian, now blooming into a Texan.
I’m nervous and excited, happy and sad. So much on the horizon. So much unknown. Leaving a lifetime behind, looking at a lifetime ahead. The roots we put down, not uprooted. We start all over again, from scratch.
Our children will remember very little of Missouri. They will be Texans. It makes my heart heavy to think they won’t remember much of the place that birthed them. But it also makes my spirit sour as I think of the state that will grow them.
We are to leave behind so many family members who loves us dearly. This is the most painful part of the process. We will miss my family greatly. We will miss being 20 minutes down the road from the people who created me and the people who have loved us well.
