I felt you should know, I’m in Texas now. Dallas, to be precise. I have been since Friday night. The drive was long, bipolar, and difficult. But it was an experience.
I don’t know how to describe how I feel. I miss home, so very much. I miss my friends, and being familiar with my surroundings.
But I’m thankful. I’m thankful for every text, tweet, wall post and call I’ve gotten from my friends, making me feel a little closer to home. I’m glad they haven’t let me go. And I hope it stays that way, because it’s going to take more than a few thousand miles for me to let go of them.
I’m thankful for my fella, who’s kept my spirits up both with his words, and with all the great things he’s introduced me to these past few weeks. I’m thankful he has the ability to put up with my constant complaining. I couldn’t have asked for someone more understanding, patient and amazing.
I’m thankful for my family, who’s given us a place to stay, and has extended their hands out to us, even though they had no obligation to. I’m thankful for them trying to make us feel at home, and their gracious hospitality.
And I am thankful for change, which is what I wanted all along. Maybe it didn’t come at the best time for me, but it came at the time it was meant to.
I don’t know what’s going to happen in a week, a month, or a year. I hope my ideas/plans work out the way I imagine them and with the people I imagine them with. Time and fate will tell.
