Goodbye sunflowers

We're moving from this farm because my husband's position has been terminated. It's what's had me down lately, because you all know how much I love it here.
But there's going to be a silver lining in this cloud. I know this much is true.
I'll talk to you about it later, ok? For now, I just want to enjoy the sunflowers and our garden and take pictures while I can. Aren't these just so cheerful looking?

You know my prayers are with. Keep up the positive attitude. It's just a new adventure! Take lots of pics. Even I want to remember it and I've never lived there.

I know it's so hard to leave a place you love. I too, believe there is always a silver lining to things. Keep us posted!!! How's George going to take it?

Dang. That's hard! Been there a few times myself, over the years - might be going through it again, soon. It was fun when we were young and childless. It's not so fun anymore. :-/

At least you've got your cheerful sunflowers and a silver lining to look forward to. :-D

Oh Kate, I'm so sorry! I know how much you love where you live. I know that there will be a silver lining, though. Things always turn out as they should.

Peace - D

I was afraid something like this was brewing after yesterday's post. But I do agree that there will be a silver lining, and you are sure to both find it, and take beautiful photographs of it all. All the best to you. I am thinking nothing but good thoughts for you. Lauren

Kate, I am so sorry. I know what it feels like to have your world knocked out from under you. Hang in there. That silver lining is just around the corner.

dlyn said...

I was thinking it might be something like that. Praying that the silver lining is very bright indeed.

Hilary said...

I'm so sorry to hear that. I sure hope your silver lining will be full-fledged sunshine very soon.

When a door closes, God opens a window. Try not to get discouraged by the roadblocks life throughs at you...usually it's for the best and if we look really hard, there just might be a better opportunity ahead, just waiting for us to find it. I have faith that you will find your silver lining, Kate. Like the sunflower, keep your face to the sun :)

Hugs,
Debra

Giving up what you know is always hard. It is even harder when you love what you know.
But sometimes the unknown surprises is and isn't so bad.

Josie said...

Omigosh, I wondered what had been going on with you lately. That is so sad.

When I look back at the times in my life when I have had to move on to another chapter, I realize now that the next chapter was always better. It never seems so at the time, however. As Dr. John says, giving up what you know - and love - is always hard.

We will look forward to hearing about your new adventures and seeing your wonderful photographs.

noble pig said...

Oh no...where are you going? It will be a new adventure with lots of pictures to take.

MAYBELLINE said...

Wow! How fortunate you are to have been able to enjoy where you are. I will look forward to following your photographic adventures. Enjoy what you can.

Sorry to hear this news. What is that saying, though....."When God shuts a door, He opens a window." There are good adventures awaiting you guys, I'm sure, and you will look back and see it all as a blessing.

The sunflowers are gorgeous!

Julianna said...

Awww, stink! I can't wait to see where you land. I love your blog and will pray for your family to be at peace in God's will during your journey.

...Oh Miss Kate, I kinda had a feeling this is what the news was and I am so sorry to hear this. But there's a reason for change and chances are you both are just movin' on to greener pastures... ;o)

...Hugs to you my friend - keep your chin up!

...Many blessings... :o)
