Changes... How many can one take?

The baby, he changes daily. He learns something new like nodding his head in answer to a question or climbing up and down the stairs. In just one more month he will be a year old. Gosh that went fast.

Changing to a new job for my loving husband. It has a learning curve. Don't they always? Sure he's done maintenance before, but each supervisor has their own way of handling things. The only way to find that out is to learn them. This change also brought on a change of scenery. A change of space for my family. We have to live on site in a "town home" of sorts. It's smaller. I like to think of it as more cozy. yeah.... cozy... It's in an apartment complex so we share a wall. That's interesting. I've only ever shared a wall with another family one other time. Changing schools for the kids. Abby had a uniform last year but won't this year. I hope the schools are decent. A change of Wards. This was very hard for me. It's the first time in a long time I've felt like I belonged. Not that one really needs to "belong" but it does make you feel special.

Change from childhood to young womanhood. Abby turned 12 this year. She is no longer in Primary. She's old enough now that she's moved on to Young Womens. I have very fond memories of the Young Womens program. She got to go to camp and bond with the girls in our old ward which made it hard for her to leave too. I can't believe that my little girl is growing up.

I also got to attend the Temple this month. And as every faithful LDS member knows it also brings about some changes as well. I loved it though. The temple is so beautiful and peaceful. I could go and just sit there

It has been a busy many months and has brought lots of changes. The dictionary has this to say about the word change: To cause to be different. I think it's safe to say that change can be good, and it can also be hard. I think we've experienced a little of it all.

Change. That's all for a while please. I don't want any more change.
