Movin on Up

     Well we did it.  Three weeks ago we moved into our new house.  I had forgotten how hard and just how stressful it is to move.  Don’t worry, it’s all coming back to me now.

     This place is gigantasaures!  We have to practictly scream to hear each other from one end of the house to the other.  I guess I wasn’t joking when I nicknamed it the “mansion.”  This is the hardest I’ve worked in a long time and I only had to take three days off to visit what will no doubt be my new neighborhood hospital.  Kidney infection strikes again.

     I do love it here, I feel like this is my dream house.  A hundred year old victorian with all original woodwork and leaded glass windows.  Dark finished hardwood floors in the master, and a surprisingly open floor plan.  Walk-in closets everywhere.  The glass is so old it’s wavy, and I finally have a 2nd bathroom.  I’m off to bed now, I am so sore and tired.


Little Things

     I think I’m getting my mojo back.  I’m inspired to write more and more.  Time does heal along with knowing that Michelle is in a better place.  I do believe that. 

     My husband just brought me a cup of coffee.  Rudy knows I usually write in the mornings after he leaves for work.  I don’t know how he knew I was getting ready to write now.  It’s something I usually do for him in the mornings to help him get up for work and now he’s brought me a cup of deliciousness that I didn’t even know I needed until it was in my hands.  A small thing, I know but that’s what love is to me.

     We’re going to have the next five days together, celebrating family and the gifts that God has given us and that’s no small thing.  I’m feeling better this week than last and I don’t feel like a trip to the hospital is imminent, and that’s no small thing.  My heart feels full of love and gratitude for the many gifts I’ve been given including the gift of more life to live and believe me, that’s no small thing either.

     We’re living in uncertain times these days, isn’t there a quote that says “May you live in interesting times?”  We certainly are and through it all I can’t help but feel we’re going to be ok come what may.  Challenges ahead, for certain but I have faith in my Lord, and in my small corner of the world.

     I’m seeing the surgeon on the 13th.  This one scares me, but I’m praying for peace of mind, comfort, and the wisdom of the surgeon, that should cover me.

     My daughter Heather is graduating from nursing college soon, with her second bachelors degree.  I’m so proud of her.  Tommy is back in college and working  along with Joey.  Sarah is also in college and working.  Little Rudy is taking a tech class and working really hard to support his family.  I don’t take credit for the success of our children instead I’m humbly grateful for it.
