I will be the first to admit I love list making and small-goal setting. Most of my affection is because I enjoy checking things off my lists or goal sheets. We moved two weeks ago today, and I SO hoped to have every box unpacked. I wanted things on the walls, and I wanted this house to feel like “home.” Unfortunately there are still plenty of boxes, and I’m not sure it feels like coming home when I arrive here.
I’m thankful that even though my personal goals may not have been met, I have the advice and encouragement from others that it’s a long process. We have friends at church who confessed to is that they still have boxes from a move over a year ago! One fellow #write31days blogger and frequent mover said to expect it to take up to six months before it really feels like home.
I’m hoping today I can get more boxes unpacked and we are another day closer to it feeling like home, but I’m not going to be discouraged if things on my list don’t get checked off. I’m beginning to understand just how long of a process making a move can really be.
