Since my daughter Hannah has been away at college, she started this fall, my life has been at a stall. At first it wasn't too bad not having her home. She came back every weekend and called often. It was like an extended vacation in the beginning. NOW... it's not the same. With the second semester of school starting in January, it has been a very difficult adjustment for me. She doesn't come home very often, not calling as much and even her facebook isn't updated as much as she use to. I was a very active mother for 25 years. Both children were involved in dance, sports, girl scouts, clubs, church, school activities and now.. nothing. I have in search of a purpose in my life again. I know this is a new season in my life and God has a purpose for me after being a very active, involved parent. The transition has been difficult. So,,, I'm ready "The Purpose Driven Life", to help me get a jump start on this new chapter in my life. I love being a mother, but my girls are growing up and I don't need to be quite as involved as I use to.....If someone had told me that I would be missing the hectic life I use to have, I would have said they were craZy. Wish me luck, pray for me and give some advice if you have gone through this.. I really could use some!! Happy Thursday!!

Here is my closet after it's been cleaned up a bit. I've tried to label boxes and organize my clothes. I've rid myself of unworn clothes and tidied up a bit. I've hung my purses if you can see them.. and cleared out the unnecessary... I still have some work to do.. but it is a start!
