When I first started to ponder the story of my life, I started where I usually start...in comparison. I feel my life is inconsequential, boring, not exceptional. I did not go into the military like my brother and sister. I have not traveled the world or saved anyone's life. I have not taken anyone's life either. I do not have my degree, or really any plan to get it, yet. However, as I really thought about who I am today and how I got here, I realized that it us quite an amazing story. I was born and raised in small town America, in a Christian home where lots of people loved me. I am naturally talented in many areas, but I prefer to be comfortable rather than exceptional. (I am working to change this about myself) I did well in school, sports, music, and enjoyed being as busy as possible. I was normal...until I wasn't.

I am starting to make adjustments to this new life that we embarked on more than a year ago. I sometimes feel I will never fit in, that I will always be just a visitor in my own life. I know this is not the truth, but why does it take so long to feel, really feel like you belong somewhere?I have some friends, but they mostly still feel like aqaintances. It is nice to have family close, I just wish it was my side sometimes. I miss my old life, but am trying to move forward. In a time of so much change, I just want some more of the same old!
