Ok Folks……my offer was accepted. Inspections are being scheduled. Closing date has been set for 3 weeks!!!!! This is really happening……as fast as it’s happening, it all feels right. I know Jim has a huge hand in all this. It’s the way we always rolled together……………………..
When Jim was alive, my definition of Home was Jim. It didn’t matter where we were, so long as we were togethe. Hell, we started out sleeping on a floor in a friends house. When he died, a piece of me died with him. But I know he wants me to live my life, and in order for me to do that, I need my own space. Here is a little sneaky peak of my new home……….
Front view…….love my trees 💚🌳
View from sliders (this is taken from the listing..I was so freakin’ excited I forgot to take pics of inside..lol)
Rainy day view….💚 my tree
You’ll have to wait for the inside pics….of course I don’t own a thing. The cottage we rented on Chincoteague came furnished..so needless to say, I’m really starting over!!!!!
I’m bittersweetly excited….I miss him soooooooo soooooo very much. Yet I know he’s guiding me….I’m a very Blessed woman, and I’ll never lose sight of that. ❤🙏
“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”~Hermann Hesse~
Can one fall in love with a tree…..I Just Did 💚🌳
This tree 💚 This amazing, beautiful tree is located on a piece of property that I went to look at yesterday…….as soon as we walked into the backyard I could almost hear a Heaven Chorus sing.. and then, wait for it, wait for it…………a huge Dragonfly paid us a visit as we were walking the property!!!!
“Indeed, I have long since come to know that nature feeds a woman’s soul. It rarely gives direct answers, but it ALWAYS nourishes, soothes and waters the SPIRIT, so that eventually growth occurs.
Today, marks 27 weeks, 189 days since I lost Jim. Today I celebrate the love of my amazing husband….and his gifts to me. I put an offer in on a home late yesterday, and my offer was accepted late last night. I now begin the process of inspections and all that goes with purchasing a home, something I haven’t done in a very very very long time. This is all possible because of My Jim……his love for me, and mine for him, transcends all time. I’m incredibly Blessed. ❤
My journey continues………
After staying with my son and his family for the almost six months since Jim died, it was time to move on. Was not easy saying goodbye to his family or my daughters family…
Natalie and Mason…as chaotic as it was at times..they were and are such a blessing and helped so much with my healing
My Emily…such a beautiful young woman she’s growing into
Arriving in Wake Forest 💚
Hello my dear friends. After a 9 hour drive, I arrived safely to my daughters on Tuesday Afternoon. The drive, was ok, a bit harrowing in spots (95S. Through Washington F.R.E.A.K.E.D me out!) but I did it!!
I’m now hanging out with this crew while I get ready to start my house hunt. Again, there is and will be chaos, but I know this is the right path for me..it feels good, it feels right.
This morning..I woke up to be reminded that a year ago, on this date. I posted the following photo and mantra…..it still holds true today…..
Even without my Jim being physically here..he reminds me every day, in some small way, that he is still with me…it’s his love, which was and still is a gift, that I gain my strength, peace and will to continue to live this crazy life of mine…….my journey continues……
I’ve been incredibly Blessed with very special Earth Angels crossing paths on this journey of mine…..today I spent a few hours with one such Angel. Nina is an amazingly beautiful Soul, who touches everyone she comes in contact with. While taking special care of me, pampering me and making me feel like a million bucks, her zest for life and her positiveness in the wake of her own heartbreak is contagious……I will be leaving PA, my life that much richer for her touching it……Angels come into our lives in so many different ways ❤🙏
Lookout NC….I’m a-coming (5 days and counting!)
Happy New Year to all of you, my WordPress Family. I’d like to thank you for your kind words and support over the past year, and especially the last 11 weeks……………I’m determined to make 2017 an amazing one. I Believe it’s fair to say that my word for the year just may be CHANGE. As best as I can, I’m going to embrace the changes to come……those of you who are willing to tag along, I thank you………I’m braver with back-up 😊
Stare back at me…
But hidden within their fibers,
Is my hidden mystery.
The unknown is before me.
My story I will tell.
It’s all waiting to be written,
My fears I will quell.
As my journey continues,
My truths will be revealed.
And on the pages of this journal,
I’ll write, I’ll share, I’ll heal.
