Living in a small town, or as MrGee and I love to call it.... "the village", has it's pros and cons! At the moment I am definitely able to see more pros than MrGee. In fact I'm not too sure he sees any pros at all .... except perhaps the fact that his family is out of Johannesburg.(The crime capital of Africa and perhaps the world!!!)
When we moved to Hillcrest in Dec 2007 I was very excited to move back to the province of my birth and upbringing. We had lived in Johannesburg for 9 years and were keen to get the kids out of the big city environment and to reconnect with family. Our goal was,(and still is)to emigrate, although I have learnt from the past that ......... we plan, but God ultimately orchestrates!
SO....... we are here for now! How long 'the now ' is I do not know. MrGee is flying every week to Johannesburg and back. Of course this is not ideal. Miss Tanzi cries for her Dad some nights! The boys don't get to see MrGee for almost half the week, and I find myself taking the role as mother AND father!! And when MrGee comes home I have to relinquish the role of being father. This can be difficult!
Mmmm.............. I have always believed that we(as a family) are back in Hillcrest for a reason. My prayer is that God reveals to us His plan for us HERE . Then at least we will have something to hold on to when things get tough!
