My mother commented last night that God obviously has a plan here and is lining things up.
Two nights ago, my dad gave mom the OK to start looking for houses in the area. Anything from a rental to a lease to a purchase. It was mixed emotions for me. I would LOVE for them to live nearby. But it feels rather pathetic to know that they're moving here because I'm in such a desperate state.
Yesterday, my mom met my wonderful realtor (who is still my good friend after 2 yrs). He took her to see a new house being built in my development and she is going to TAKE IT! It's about a 7 minute drive away. It's near the new pool they're putting in (the place is getting so huge, they need a 2nd pool!) and near this HUGE play scape (the boys don't know that yet). It's also walking distance from the elementary school they're building. It would be so cool if it were in my neighborhood. But hey, this is amazing.
So God has been helping me clean house and free up my spiritual life. Now, he's putting some extra family nearby to help strengthen my little fractured family. I can't wait to see what he does next. My plan is to live really well. It will be the best revenge.
