I hope that everyone reading this had a great Thanksgiving. As usual, the Thomas family spent time with extended family. It was nice to hang out with the aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces. With this being my last Thanksgiving as a resident of Illinois, the day took on a special meaning for me. I’m not sure when I’ll be seeing some of these relatives again. I have been thanking God for my family. They’ve been very supportive of us with our move to Oklahoma.
We’ve spend the last week leading up to Thanksgiving by packing, packing, and more packing. Nearly all of our belongings are in brown cardboard boxes. We were still packing up stuff this morning. But finally, the packing is done. Now, we are just waiting for the big moving truck to arrive. They’re already an hour late. Hopefully the rest of the day will go smoother.
While I’m excited about starting the next chapter in my life, I’m also sad to be leaving my friends and family here in Illinois. I can see that I been living a life that is too comfortable. God is drawing me out of that comfort zone. I don’t know what He’s got planned, but I know that it’s going to be awesome.
Where’s that truck? More moving day updates will follow soon…
