Not a Clue

If anyone had told me 5 years ago that I would be living in Maryland, I would have told them they were crazy!  I would have said "What on earth is in Maryland, and why would I want to move there?"    Well, my brother got a job here and moved his family up.  My dad had recently passed away, and since mom and I had no ties and my brother had her only grandchild with him, we decided to follow them up here.  I love it now that I'm here.  Love the seasons, the hills, the farms, living near Washington DC.   But 5 years ago I had no clue.  Life is like that.  You think you know where you're headed, and suddenly you get tossed in a whole other direction.    I'm not one to make 5 or 10 year plans.  I've always let life take me where it wanted me to go.  I always feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be at any given time.  But I never know where I'm going to be next!  I go from interesting job to interesting job.  Never been a career woman.  Never really known what I wanted to be when I grew up!  I just know I'll be led to my next stop along the road when the time is right.  I'm just not sure what road I'm on or where it's going!

Yeh, who know what life will bring. We just have to honour the moment. But I guess thats the beauty of life although it can be a little scary sometimes.
