ups and downs of this move

the ups
Better paying job
better place to raise family
better school for kids
love the house we are renting
getting to know my new ward.
I have a visiting teacher who visits
sun rise ans sun set over the river
kids are bussed
more family oriented activities for kids
park 2 blocks from my house.
less job related stress on scott
growing closer as a family

the downs
renter didn't pay rent
water was never shut off when we told them to shut it off 1200 dollar bill later
being lied to over and over again by a friend dumped that friend
giving house back to the bank
never seeing my old friends again face book only goes so far
but in all of this i am learning to rely on my faith more and more each day a little at a time.

Looking at the list of good and bad the bad is all only temporary. It sucks now but they will all go away after some time. Just think of how much all those good things are going to keep impacting you and your family for years to come. We are still struggling but being able to wear shorts in November is keeping me sane, lol.

I think your list of ups seriously trumps your downs. . . such great changes have to come with a little bit of adversity - and it sounds like you're really counting your blessings!! I'm so happy for you!
