Place in this world...

The wind is moving
But I am standing still
A life of pages
Waiting to be filled
A heart that's hopeful
A head that's full of dreams
But this becoming
Is harder than it seems
Feels like

I'm Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

If there are millions
Down on their knees
Among the many
Can you still hear me
Hear me asking
Where do I belong
Is there a vision
That I can call my own
Show me

I'm Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world


I absolutely love this song.... I have been thinking about it a lot as I've been searching for my own place in this world.
 I mean- I know I am supposed to be where I am. With the husband that I have, my children... even my dog!
That is my place.
 But I know there is more to enhance this experience we call life. Which is why this yr, my life is taking so many twists and turns. And while they may be difficult and scary and hard, they are supposed to be part of my world. Yesterday in the mail, I got this:




So.. it's really happening!!! By mid July, I will once again be a college freshman! Only 14yrs later! And I'll be enhancing our financial future (well not by much) and my way of life.

I also got a all this morning from Bobbie at Vanderbilt Weight Loss saying that all my requirements have been faxed off now to my insurance and they have 15 days to respond.
So by mid July, I will have a date of when I'll be physically changing my life.

But the one thing that will never change is my heart. The love I have for family. For others. And increase the love I have for myself. And hopefully won't change the love others have for me. And now... I will never forget!

Love you Shans! Hope college goes well for you and you enjoy it! If I decide to get an actual tattoo it is totally going to be that heart/love one! I saw that and fell in love with it. I want it on my shoulder though. :)
