Day 17 – A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently

A move always turns your life upside down. After our recent move, however, things were supposed to settle down a little sooner. Things still haven’t come together quite yet. I’m still unemployed. Still don’t even know what I’m really supposed to be doing, actually. My family is still finding their groove, and lots is still up in air. Unfortunately, I went into the move with the mindset that everything was going to instantly be better–life would make sense again, things would fall into place, and all the hard stuff we went through in Texas would be behind us. That did not happen. I will say, I feel much more at peace here (must be the ocean :P), but we had a whole new set of challenges. However, the bright side of this season’s trials is that our family has been drawn much much closer together. That’s saying a lot, too, because we have always been a tight family unit, but we have banded together and worked through some pretty desperate situations. My family rocks. California is pretty awesome, too–they just need to get their whole budget/unemployment thing worked out.
