Tell a friend.
Ferial-Shmerial is back.
Well, at least I hope so.
I've missed blogging and now that life has settled down a bit,
I feel I can try and start posting regularly again.
Let's re-cap, shall we?
In the last 6 months, the hubs and I have:
>> moved overseas
>> flew on an airplane with a cat!
>> moved in with my parents
>> had a dear friend visit us from Korea
>> gotten plugged back into our church
>> gotten job(s)
>> moved out of my parents house
>> bought a car
>> moved into our own cute little apartment
>> refinished a table
>> reunited with family and old friends
>> been homesick for Korea (often, actually)
We are happy.
We have a cute little home, our fur baby, our family and friends,
and so much to be thankful for.
When I even think back to the stress and exhaustion of moving across the ocean again,
I am overwhelmed by God's goodness and provision and just so thankful that we made it.
We miss Korea (and our people there) something fierce.
Sometimes, I wake up in the morning and in those moments right before
I open my eyes, I expect to see my room in Korea when I open them.
These days, I'm missing my Korean commute a lot;
that one-minute walk to work couldn't be beat.
Nowadays, I've got a 30-minute drive to work in traffic.
It really is such a beautiful road, though, and if I have to be stuck in traffic,
it's the best place to be.
A 30-minute commute certainly isn't anything to complain about either.
Especially since I love my job.
Yep, and there's no sarcasm in that sentence.
I truly do love my job.
I can't help but be SO THANKFUL to the Lord for providing me with this job.
Jobs aren't exactly plentiful right now,
and God not only provided me with full-time work that pays our bills,
but with full-time work that I care about and enjoy.
Thank you, Jesus.
So, all that to say, I'm back.
Back in California.
Back to work.
Back to blogging.
Here's to 2013.
