Hey y’all … I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth … but I did hit a pretty big bump in the road.

Unfortunately things don’t always work out the way you’d like but in the end you realize that it’s for the best. I really thought I had found something special but now that it’s over (he ended it last Monday) I understand that I was making compromises that I shouldn’t have to make.

I want someone who shares my belief that there is a greater power out there governing all of us. I want someone who loves to ride bikes to the Lemon Bar but who also enjoys more than just sitting in a car-port all day drinking beer and watching TV while you sweat to death and bugs eat you alive. I want someone who wants to be with me so bad that they’re willing to do things like come to church with me or take me for a weekend getaway or play a game of cornhole at the beach.

So, it really was divine timing actually.

I recently got approved by BofA for the short-sale on my condo and have been looking for a place to live out at the beach. I had looked at a tiny one bedroom condo thinking that I probably wouldn’t be there a full year (because he had hinted around at plans for our future) and thought, well, it’s cheap and doable short-term. I really wouldn’t have been happy in that place and I’m glad that things ended when they did and I was able to really think about living long-term in a place and finding a place that will really make me happy.

I’m moving to a cute townhouse that has two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs and kitchen, living, dining, and a half bath downstairs. It has a nice little screened-in porch on the back that opens to a canal in the back yard. I think I will be very happy there. Plus, it has enough space for me to put all my stuff and have a guest room. Even better, it’s over the ditch (over the intra-coastal on the beach side of town) and that makes me very happy.

I really have grown to know myself better these past few months and realized what I really want out of life and, most importantly, my life-partner. So, I’m alright.

Keep praying for me.

I’m definitely in a transition period and still trying to figure out which direction I want to go.

“Don’t worry … about a thing … ’cause every little thing … is gonna be alright.”

  1. I’m praying for you, Caron!

    You’re beautiful and wonderful and you have a new place to call your own.




  2. I was going to say I’m sorry things didn’t work out, but it sounds like there is nothing to be sorry for. So instead I’m going to say congratulations on finding a new and excellent place to live! Here’s to fresh beginnings!

  3. Your new place sounds wonderful! It’s nice how God takes the not so good and works it out for our good. Praying that the transitions will lead you into a wonderful new place of blessing!
