Why is this blog called, “If You Were Here?”
Well, I’m glad you asked.
My family and I moved away back in October and I became very homesick and depressed. I stopped using social media because seeing my friends post about what was happening in their lives made me feel more homesick and depressed than I already was. I wished I was right there with them. Or at least less than 1,000 miles away. However, without social media, it is A LOT harder to share my thoughts, discoveries, projects, and what God has been doing in my life with all of my people. So, this blog came into existence.
A lot of things have happened in my life in just two months. My relationship with God has grown and changed through my struggle with depression. I have made some new friends and have even found some kindred spirits. I started and finished my quilt entry for Oklahoma City’s Winter Quilt Show and was recently notified that my quilt was accepted and will be displayed in January!
I am slowly starting to settle in this new place that will one day be called ” home.” My family is currently living in a rental house, but we are building a permanent house which we are all so excited for. We have found a new church and have already started becoming involved. I have played my violin three times in just the first month we’ve been attending!
True friends are always together in spirit, but perhaps this will make me feel closer to you and you to me. Through this blog, I hope to show you the places that I would take you to, the people you would meet, my various projects both finished and in the making, the music and movies that are currently my favorites and what God has been teaching me, as if you were here.
