Saying Goodbye........

As many of you know, in February we left the state of South Carolina which had been our home for the last 12 years. Unfortunately, the economy hadn't been kind to us, with a year long unemployment for David, ultimately resulting in our losing our house, and filing for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy wasn't an easy decision for us, but we felt we didn't have much of a choice. The last ten years were filled with a full time ministry position, two years of trying to establish a career in the financial industry in a failing economy and then a one year unemployment. So, we had used up, cashed in, and sold everything we had, but it just wasn't enough.

So, we decided to move to Oklahoma for a fresh start.

Why Oklahoma?

David's sister and family, brother, uncle, and cousins are near the Tulsa area. We thought it would be nice to finally, after 15 years, to live near family.

But, we left many in South Carolina that we considered to be family.

The goodbyes were hard.

Goodbyes are indeed so very hard! I pray you are settling in well in OK!

Like most families now days...we are separated by mere miles. Luckily in the 21st century we have the internet!!!

I hope things are improving and all are well.

We miss you all tons too. But, you're right, it is nice to live near family. I wish ours was a little closer. I'm glad we can keep in touch! I hope things are looking better for you.
