Well a few months ago TJ was approached by a dentist in Hood River who is a long time family friend. He wanted TJ to come work with him and the opportunity seemed too good to be true. At the time I was on narcotics and holed up in bed with kidney stones, so my valiant and stalwart husband prayed and fasted about this move for our family and received a clear and undeniable answer that our time in the military had come to an end and it was time to start a new chapter in our lives. So here we are...getting out of the military, moving back to Oregon, and finally putting down roots. I never thought it was possible to shed tears over this, but I have really come to love San Diego...on top of that, our adventures in the military have made me a stronger and better person. I have friends and memories that would have never been possible had the military not afforded us the opportunities it has. Our family has grown by two, we have traveled the world, and have made friendships that will last a lifetime. I'm so blessed by a Heavenly Father who knows me better than I know myself. Who could look past my tears and devestation and know that this was what I needed to continue growing and learning in this life.
So Hood River, Oregon here come the Finlayson's. The land of abundance in produce and wind surfing!! I have driven through Hood River many times in my life but haven't done much exploring there. It's a small town near a big city. I'm excited for my families adventures to come and again am so richly blessed by an all knowing Heavenly Father who has assured us that this is good and right. I can't wait to see what's around the bend for us!! All are welcome to come visit!! We are staying for a while!!!
