Life Never Goes the Way You Plan

Life never goes the way you plan.  This has got to be the #1 theme of my life's story.  No matter how much I plan, prepare, and look forward to certain things in life--it never goes that way.  Sometimes my life goes better.  Sometimes my life gets harder . . . and then eventually works out okay.  But it never goes the way I plan.

I could tell you many experiences.  There's the time I . . .

*Realized I had fallen in love with My Man at age 20 and would marry young.

*Found out I would be having all my children by C-section.

*Discovered my children were not the perfect little angels, the way I had planned them to be.

*Discovered that I was not the perfect little mother that I had planned to be.

*Had to move across the country with 1st newborn babe and young husband to a place that I'd never even heard of in the South.  I figured we'd only live there for 1-2 years though.

*Ended up living in that said place in the South for 10 years.

*Was told by My Man when I was 7 months pregnant with Little Son and living in humid South that he wanted to go back to school to become a doctor.  A life of struggle and loans were not something I planned on.

*Got hit by an intoxicated driver.  Changed my perspective forever.

*Found out I would only be able to have 3 children . . . and not the 4-5 that I had planned on.

*Moved back to the West this past year to a small town.  I never thought I'd live in a small town.

*Starting blogging randomly one day and found that I really love it!

*AND HERE'S THE LATEST CHANGE . . . . I found out yesterday that our landlords are going to sell the house we are renting or possibly move back into it.  So we will be moving in the next month. We have to be out by July 1st which is when our contract ends.  We haven't even lived here quite a year yet.  Ugh.  Ugh. Ugh!  We had totally planned on staying in this house for at least 2 years, but times are tough all around.

It's not too big of a deal, I know.  There are worse things in life.  But we are frantically house-hunting and making big decisions.  Time to start praying a little harder, I guess.  I'm pulling out the boxes and re-packing stuff that I finally remembered where I put it a few months ago.  I'm leaving my cute garden behind too.

So wish me luck!  I'll do my best to keep up on my blogging, because I love it so.  Please keep voting for me! It helps me to spread the word about this positive blog.  I truly appreciate your support!

  3. Life happens when you are busy making plans! You can do this, though! We just found out that we are expecting our very unplanned third baby. And we had so many plans! Oh well.

    1. Oh a baby is so much more exciting than moving, but lots more work in the long run! So true that is how life happens. Craziness. Oh well is right.

  4. Well, I think that means you are supposed to dig deeper roots and find a house of your own in our neighborhood. The one on the corner behind me is for sale by owner and it's beautiful! :)
