Oh! This weekend just flew by in a haze of doing so much. We had been looking for a temporary home and thought we had found the perfect one (Italian style apartments)...but things did not work out. So...now we are back to square one just weeks before Xmas!!! We were so disappointed, stressed and...plain tired of it all. Trying to rush things when we know better. We have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed today with lots of short tempers and "I need my space" moments. There were tears , there was blame, there was anger... But now...late this evening, after a hot cup of tea, a bear hug from Tim and watching Tara soundly asleep...I am counting my blessings. There are so many people without jobs and families, so many soldiers serving in far away places, so many people in dire situations with lonely, empty hearts...It really puts things in perspective for me. We are going to have the best Xmas ever with a charming tree and thoughtful gifts...lots of photos and eggnog...and most of all...love love love. Things will fall into place when they will...In the meantime, I am going to take a deep breath and be in the moment, heart wide open, trusting the journey.
(the days are so warm over here...green and lush too)
