We’re Moving

We are moving.

No, not the doll to just a different location in the house.

My whole family.

To Florida.

Watch this video for explanation.

We don’t know when, we’re planning the day after Christmas but we might get iced in so we don’t know. We don’t know where we’re moving too, God is providing it for us. It’s hard on all of us. My dad has been here for 21 years. This is the most home my brother and I haveย ever really known. Almost six straight years here. I can’t imagine leaving it. It’s a HUGE part of my life. I can’t imagine being torn away from everything I know most. I’m so familiar with the city, my house, everything. And I LOVE being a Texan! My heart BREAKS IN HALF at the thought of leaving my BFF’s. We know we’re not moving to Florida permanently. We know that for a fact. We don’t know how long we will be there. However long God wants. It’s for at least a year. Then we’ll see.

I’ll still run DWOD, but during these days of packing and getting things figured out and the thought of not even spending one last Christmas here if it means getting iced in, posts will be slow.

I’m so sorry for the lack of posts! I’m afraid you will all slip away from DWOD, one by one, until no one is reading it anymore because I just don’t post. I’d be so sad if that happened!!!! :'(

Please keep reading. Please keep waiting. Talk to other girls in the comments.ย Just don’t leave DWOD forever. I love you girls so much and want you to enjoy reading DWOD. No posts = no fun. No fun = people leaving of boredom.

I love you all! I’ll try to post as much as I can. We won’t be packing and stuff for a couple of days or weeks, so, yeah. You’ll have some posts to enjoy before boredom comes. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know it must be hard for you Madison, but I love that you and your family are so committed to Jesus, and want to do his will. And just know, I will never stop reading your blog. I go to it often, and I love you and your blog. You are such an inspiration! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just watched that video on youtube this morning. Listen to God’s voice and he will do as he says. He cares for you and loves you. You have been chosen to do something for his kingdom. Continue to do as he says! He will provide. He always does. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Madison, this is my first comment on your blog, but I’ve read it for a while ๐Ÿ™‚ I absolutely ๐Ÿ™‚ LOVE your blog and I will DEFINITELY not stop reading it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so sorry about your move, I understand how sad it is to move from someplace you’ve lived all your life, my dad is a pastor too, and we had to move 1/2 across the country because he felt God calling him to plant a church there. I was heartbroken to leave the state I loved, but a few years later God called us BACK to our home state because He had more for us to do here ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with AJ, listen to God’s voice, and He will do as He says. He has chosen you and your family to do something amazing for His kingdom. He will always provide for you and your family as always, and He cares about you and He loves you. I hope your move goes well, Madison, and who knows? Maybe you will grow to love Florida as much as you love Texas ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be praying for you and your family’s move!

    Thank you, everyone, your words are very encouraging to me as my faith and trust in God is being stretched and tested. I feel you all are my closest friends even if we have never seen each other. Thank you girls <3

    Madi –
    My dad is the pastor of our church and we have had to move across the country twice, once when I was 3, and once when I was 7, to either start a new church, or help at a previously started one. I know how you feel, and how hard it is too move far away. I know it will be hard to move away from friends, and from your gymnastics school. I haven’t wanted to talk about this, but I have to quit Irish Dance. It is hard for me, and will be hard for you when you might have to start again for gymnastics. Both times I have moved, I haven’t really kept in touch with many of my friends, the main reason being that I didn’t have an email address when I first moved, my friends didn’t have one the second time I left, and we kept forgetting to mail our letters. I’m sure since you are much older than me at the time, you will be able to keep in touch. Since it is only temporary, it isn’t really saying goodbye, after all. Just think of moving as a trip. 1 year will go by fast, and even if it is longer, you’ll have more time to appreciate Florida.
    We have some family that we’ve visited a few times in Florida, and it is very pretty! Even though you might live hours away from Disneyworld, I’m sure you will be able to go at some point. Splash Mountain is always fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ Legoland is there, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter if you are allowed to read those. (What I would give to go there……)
    I’ve lived where I live now for a while, and I feel completely at home. If I had to move again, I’d be very upset. (I would love living where we used to, though) Like I said before, it can be hard, but it can be fun to meet new people. And, Orlando is going to have an AG store soon. You could maybe go there at some point. Since I have family in Florida, maybe if I go there while you live there we could try and meet up somewhere imbetween or something. If there are two people who own dolls that I know of via the internet, you would be one of the ones I would love to meet in real life.
    It is funny, having internet friends can be like knowing the person. I’ve been reading DWOD every day for the past year and a half, and have gone back through every single archive. I will continue to read it every day, even if it means that there always isn’t a new post and I don’t have enough time to read a different doll blog. Your blog has helped re-kindle my interest in dolls, and first introduced me to stop motions. It’s always fun to read your blog, and I hope you continue, even if it only means a post a couple times a month or something like that. I love your dolls, I love you and your spirit.
    Chin up, girl. You’re going to Florida!
    Kathleen

      I’m going to be on here lots of mornings, so if anyone else wants to be on at about 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time (US) I’ll try and be on. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Wow, thank you, Kathleen. You are so, so sweet. I don’t feel alone in this move to Florida with all you girls by my side. You girls inspire and encourage me so much. Thank you for your faith in DWOD. Your comments are just so amazing and super kind. Thanks again, Kathleen. Reading your comment made me smile once again. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I love you all girls! <3

          You’re welcome. I get this entirely. I visit Texas sometimes because we have family there, and I’ve always wished I could meet you sometimes, so when you said this the first thing I did was double check to see that we are not planning on going to Texas between now and Christmas. I would love to, though! Hopefully next time I go to Florida. At which point you might already be back in Texas. Sigh.
          Thank you.

    I love your blog, and I will keep checking it! I don’t remember moving, but I know if we had to move, I would be very sad. So I understand completely. But keep trusting in God, and if He wants you to keep posting, then He’ll provide time!

    OH and one of my friends had to move to new jersey to help a church, it’s hard to keep in touch sometimes.

    That’s so sad! I’ve had to move a ton. I remember on AGFMB that I was telling everyone I was moving to Arkansas. And dont worry about your blog. I really don’t think anyone would stop reading your blog. Cause your awesome!

    Look on the bright side- there is a new AG store in Florida! If you live nearby, no need or shipping fees :).

      I know, I’m so excited! I’ll hopefully be going there for my birthday…. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and that’s so smart – I could just drive over there and purchase something if we lived nearby instead of having to pay for shipping!!

    That’s… Pretty crazy. We are Texan too, and….. Drumroll…
    We are moving 5 days after Christmas. Wow. Super weird.
    However I am not moving to Florida!

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
