slowly creeping back

Wednesday, 2 July 2014

I went for weeks without missing this space. But now, suddenly, I feel I need to be here again in some capacity. I'm not sure how regularly I'll be posting, but I'm wanting to connect and share again. I also miss the documentation of the girls' growing up (suffering serious mother-guilt over the lack of photographs of our sweet second child!)

There's a lot of uncertainty in our life at the moment. Work for Paddy in town is drying up and there's a very real probability that he'll either have to work away for very long periods of time, or that we'll all move away together as a family for the next couple of years. I've got my fingers and toes crossed for the latter. Despite the overwhelming anxiety that grips me at the thought of uprooting and leaving the comforts of these four walls and our friends and family here, I am trying to embrace change and leap faithfully toward this new path. As long as the four of us are together, we'll be home.

Still, this is all easier said than done. I feel so completely stressed and overwhelmed. If anyone has been through a similar situation, I'd love to hear about your experience. Also, if I have any readers from (or familiar with) Darwin, NT or Gladstone, QLD, I'd love to hear what you have to say about the liveability of these towns. Thank you!
