There seems to be a possible twist in this exciting adventure.
Cincinnati, Ohio. A family of 6 preparing for another school year. 4 young daughters have only known life in Ohio but have a Mom that urgently prays for God to open up doors for them in Tallahassee, Florida. It’s been years since my sister, their mom, has felt her heart longing for life near the rest of our family, in the Florida panhandle. I absolutely adore my family and when my sis told me about her prayers, I proclaimed if she and her family move to Tallahassee, I would to. If I’m being totally honest, I didn’t think it all the way through, and made the promise before I rationally thought about what it actually means for me to leave the city I love. Years have gone by without any developments for my sister’s family… until now. You see, it’s pretty much all rested on whether my brother-in-law can get work in North Florida as an engineer. Tallahassee being a relatively small town (not including the college population), I guess finding work he’s qualified for isn’t as easy as you might think. But later this week, he’s making a trip there for a face-to-face interview with a potential employer. This is their second or third interview and from what I’ve heard, it looks very promising. Now I’m hearing chatter about the promise I made a long time ago. I joke that it expired. But if I’m being totally honest, the idea doesn’t sound totally absurd and it’s something I’ll be thinking about over the coming weeks.
Could this be a twist I never saw coming? Could my time in Nashville be coming to an end? Frankly, I’m shocked those words are even on the table because I love it here.
