It seems like we are constantly undergoing changes here, in a state of flux. It’s fitting, since I grew up as a military brat; as a kid we moved anywhere from every 6 months to 2 years. For the first several years of our marriage, James would come home to the furniture totally rearranged and immediately know that I was craving some change.
We’ve settled now, and for the most part, furniture doesn’t move anymore. Instead, we have begun to observe the liturgical year, and change our decor with the church seasons. We also homeschool and we move with the kids’ (and our) changing needs. About 6 months ago, I quit school when James had a relapse, and started a business walking dogs and dog sitting.
Well, another big (for us) change is on the horizon. James is going back to school! He’s feeling every feeling that he has, but he’s all registered and 4 weeks from today, he will start his first class.
Since he’s going to be in school full time, I have started the transition back to being a stay at home mom. I hope to also work on sewing, knitting, woodworking, and any other things that I can share with the kids. It’s important to me that, along with being well-educated, my children are able to do any handicrafts that they desire.
Change for us, usually means that we’re adapting to our circumstances. I think most of us who live with MS (or any other chronic disease) have to become skilled at adapting, because our circumstances change so drastically.
