As I head into closing on the sale of my house, I’m remembering that I have much to be thankful for in my life. I’m thankful for my health, my home and all the friends who have supported me during this challenging time. People showed up at just the right time to help me with each step from listing to buying the house, sorting, organizing and selling my stuff, moving and finding a new place to call home. I have also received several interesting housesitting possibilities and the option to maintain my gardens for the new home owners! 🙂
More than the things or process, as I let go of my house, garden and things, my intention is to focus on relationships. I want to rebuild, renew and allow relationships that are based on love, trust and good feelings. As friends both local and online have reminded me, the universe is and has supported me through each step of this process. My biggest current lessons seem to be around trust, decision making and flowing with life.
Here is a loving tribute to the home and gardens that have so beautifully supported me during the last 5 years; despite my complaints and mental resistance to the contrary! 🙂 As a wise and loving teacher recently posted on Facebook.
Life is beautiful … and everything experienced which is not, is only created in our minds. Coming to know this truth, in every cell of our body, there may still be pain, but suffering shall exist no more. ~ David Greene
I believe that things will slow and settle next week so that I might get back to writing, reading and connecting with my online friends. I give thanks to each of you that I have connected with in the last 4 years of blogging. And I give thanks to my beautiful home and garden. Goodbye my sweet.
