Let us all press on

From sun up to sun down, we packed boxes, organized, folded,
 packed more, and then carried heavy boxes down steep stairs
and outside of our trailer.
There were only about six times I broke down in tears because
 of pure exhaustion and melancholy.
   The Little Nies have been amazing and very
 helpful, and I am so thankful for their healthy bodies
and willing hearts. This isn't an easy time for them-
but they are faithful and trusting as they pack up their belongings again.
  It's amazing.
God is absolutely carrying us along as we embark on a new adventure.
Last night we had a family council and went through our family calendar.
We discussed upcoming plans and our feelings,
 and a few tears were shed.  
To end the night, we went around the table and 
each one of us said the family theme that we picked when we moved to
the ranch last August. 
"Fear not. Be of good cheer. 
Your future is as bright as your faith."
Last Sunday at church, we said our goodbyes to our friends in the congregation.
We will miss them all so much!
Mr. Nielson and I, along with The Little Nies, had an opportunity to each
 share our thoughts and feelings about our time living in New Mexico
and our love for the Savior from the pulpit. 
I am so glad about that opportunity.
Change is hard, but we press on!
