Change in life isn't always easy. I've made changes in my life. We all have. But relocation to a different state is scary. For 25 years Ohio was all I ever knew. My friends and family were there. It's where I grew up, went to high school, had a child, joined the military, and went to college. My first marriage, my life was Ohio. But things happened. And Ohio became a place I "use" to live. The first major state move was when I came to Georgia, hard to believe that was almost 3 years ago! The only people I knew were my mom and pop and sisters. The first few months I was here I didn't venture out. I knew no one. I was scared. But, against all odds, I made the leap and got a job at Waffle House. I began making aquantiences and forming friendships. I met my second husband here and started a life. I was comfortable. Life was great. I didn't want for anything. My life was truly my own for the first time in a while. But again life decided it was time for another change. And fate also intervened on my behalf. Things were not going smoothly in my second marriage. I was on the verge of leaving and starting over on my own when I met Jesse. Jesse is now my husband. ( and if you've been keeping track he's #3) I've since divorced my second husband and married Jesse. He truly is my one and only soulmate. I've lived him from the moment I looked into his eyes. And that brings me to my next major change in life. (and for the record, no I am not pregnant!) I'm making another move across state lines! In about 2 weeks we will be moving to Alabama. And yet again I will be starting over. Going to a town where he knows everyone and I know no one. And I haven't mentioned it to him, but I'm terrified. I'm 28 and I don't want to start over again. I will do it for him. I will do it because I know moving back close to his family is something he truly wants to do. But it's going to be hard!
