Moving! - Aria MacDonald


We have a house!

We are really pleased, it is really nice and ticks all the boxes.  And it is a private rental- no agents to deal with or fees to pay!! It is great and we are excited to move in.

We get the keys on Monday and can start moving.  If you have muscles or a truck or trailer please flick us as email. Or if you would like to unpack a box or two that would be great too.  We have the interested job of remembering what was packed up almost two years ago and collecting it from all the lovely people that stored it for us.

It feels hard to be moving on without Aria and not shopping for a few pink/purple/orange items for her room.  We brought Asher these cool farm animal fairy lights.  They had pink cupcake ones there too…..  I miss having a daughter, I miss Aria….

    So very happy for you. You will begin to start over again and whilst hard without Aria, different house, different life and you will continue to grieve but you WILL move on! Loads of warm fuzzies to the three of you and take care and enjoy your new home.

  2. Fiona McNair says:

    Cool one a good distraction from the pain…….this will be the start of many good things to come. Do you have to look for new jobs, or have you been able to keep your old ones. Whatever you will be okay and well looked after from above…..all the best.

    Great news that you have a new home, somewhere to make your own and to start to feel like you can put roots down again. Dad has a trailer you are welcome to use.

    It is hard, having a daughter in your heart/soul is not the same as in person. I cannot pretend to have any words that will comfort you about this. Except that you are never alone, so many people lifting you up in love and prayer.

    Where are you moving to Anita??? Don’t have a truck or a trailer but if I am available (WHEN/WHERE)? I’ll be there for you.

  8. Rod & Margaret says:

    We rejoice with you all – will be wonderful to get settled in a place of your own with your own possessions about you. Thank you Father for this provision.xx

    Hey guys- so glad to hear you found a house to settle into. I remember filming you packing those boxes up what seems like a lifetime ago. I was thinking of you this weekend when I filmed a web video for an amazing charity called Kenzies Gift. They provide phychological support for siblings- I’m not sure if Starship or any support agencies have already put you in touch with them but here’s the web site just in case you need their help

    High there and great news to hear of God’s faithfulness and provision of a house. Wish I was a bit closer and could help, will be thinking about you though and trust you get plenty of help along the way.
    Poor Asher Will be praying for him as he learns to deal with not having his big sister. And for patience for Mum and Dad.
    Sending love and prayers.

  11. Cork and Carol says:

    We miss her, too! And we miss you all! We are pleased to hear of the house and it sounds nice. You will have to send us a picture sometime. Just to know that our prayers and thoughts go out your way many times. Love you to bits!!

    Once again God provides your needs.It is so good that you are finally able to start life again on your own needs. Asher will have his own home and can move on.Aria will not be forgotten by anyone but a new beginning will help make it a bit easier.None of us will ever forget how she touched our lives.

    My dears,
    I’ve have been out of the loop for a while and only recently heard your sad news, so today I’ve been catching up with Arias blog. God, in His wisdom and love, blessed you with an angel for 5 years. He has given you the courage and strength to cope with everything you’ve had to endure. Now He’s graciously moving you on to a new era of your lives. One that will bring new and different blessings that you may never have experienced if it hadnt been for Arias brief time with you.
    I’m glad you’ve got a new home.Enjoy it,and all the good things that God has in store for you. Great is His faithfulness. This comes to you with my love and renewed prayer support.

    Hey guys,
    Wish I could help. Love helping people move, but there is this matter of an ocean between us, and there’s work, and then airfare. 🙂 Just know that that we wish the best for your move and wish we could be there. Cork
