It's official. The Pierson family is leaving Montana. I realize that we tried this a couple of years ago, to no avail. This time it's for real. I promise. Jay got a new job near Katy, TX and we'll be heading down there at the end of this month. It's happened so quickly that we are in a bit of a daze and a teeeeeny bit overwhelmed, but doing well nonetheless. We asked God to go before us and make a way if this was His will for our family and I can't even begin to tell you the amazing things He has done. I shall save that for a future post.
As I sit here typing this, we are in the throes of a nasty spring storm full of rain/sleet/snow. It certainly makes the leaving a bit easier for me, I have to admit. I will not miss 9 months of winter. Nope...not at all. I look forward to not having cold feet. It will be a new and lovely thing to live in a place where one can actually have a winter garden! I'm quite stoked to learn all about gardening in South Texas and have already contacted several CSA's, Farmer's Markets, and organic farms. Priorities, don't you know. ;)
Montana is a beautiful, rugged place to live. We will miss our amazing views of the Spanish Peaks and the Bridger Mountains. We'll miss the spring and summer hiking. Montana summers can be a most wonderful thing. Most of all, of course, we will miss the people we love. In the past 19 years we've been blessed with amazing friends who have become our family and it hurts my heart to have to say goodbye. For now, however, I'm not going to think about that. I choose to pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think about that tomorrow.
Now it's time to get back to cleaning out, sorting, and packing.
Love to you all!
