On Monday an email was sent to the employees at Darren's firm - announcing our decision to move to the Yakama reservation. I knew this day was coming and I have cried about it before. But the day really came and it was hard.
I've watched Darren pour himself into being a great CPA for the past 20 years. Hours and hours of time he has spent diligently working and rising through the ranks. And then he became a partner. We had visions of him managing this CPA firm someday. Wow.
It is slowly slipping away. I know it is right, but it is still hard. Hard to see my husband say good-bye to a good job, a great company and a career that he has worked for his whole life.
I am once again reminded to hold things loosely. To quote Corrie ten Boom, "I've learned that we must hold everything loosely, because when I grip it tightly, it hurts when the Father pries my fingers loose and takes it from me."
Yes, this hurts a little. But God is so good. He is so patient with me too as I place one foot in front of the other and follow where He is leading us.
