the silent hand of grace

                                                                (Guided, mixed media)
I can't wait to share this amazing turn of events with you!! Yesterday afternoon-just the day after our disappointment with the apartments not working out-we received word that our home in Va has been leased out for 3 years. It's not the ideal situation but considering that the housing market is so bad all over the country, we find ourselves in a situation that so many people are in. But what this means is that we can start looking for a home right here in Ca that we can purchase rather than rent! This bit of news came as such a gift to we can move forward in a particular direction. Sometimes...the hand of grace is hidden, until we fully trust without seeing...without the burden of expectations. Until we have faith in the Universe, in our community of friends and kindred spirits (you all!!!), in ourSELVES.
                                                                                                (for you)
Another little piece of delightful of the big reasons I did not want us to spend Xmas in a hotel is because I wanted us to have a home cooked meal. Oh!! maybe that sounds a little silly...but I really wanted that for my family. Now we have been invited by Tim's co-workers to not one, not two...but three dinners!!! I know that we have been touched by the silent hand of grace and I am humbled and utterly grateful. Especially at this time of year...when the air is full of magic and wonder. We are going shopping for a little Xmas tree soon ; I just can't wait! Oh...and I had my first experience driving on the Ca highway yesterday and it was hair raising!!! Not for the faint of heart, let me tell you!
P.S. We are only going to one of the Xmas dinners!!!!

Yayyyyy!!!! I'm so happy for you Soraya! How exciting to be looking for your own home rather than renting. Glad you will be amongst friends over Christmas too.

Congratulations! It sounds like things are really falling into place for you. I'm so happy things are working out for you & your family!! And I'm so impressed you have already driven the freeways! I lived there nearly 4 YEARS and always avoided driving the freeways. I was way too scared :)

so so happy to hear things are coming together for your family my friend. And I so know about the little things (like the dinner) DO NOT seem so little when you are in transition. Sending MORE LOVE AND GRACE you way...xo
