A year ago we walked into a Title Office and they let us sign papers to purchase our home. If you’ve been here for a while then you know that was a pretty epic day. A huge surprise to everyone (because we literally told no one) and an even bigger surprise for us.
Today is happy.
It’s a full circle, happy, family filled, sunshiny day. And we’re here. We landed.
Bloom where you’re planted … my mom sent me flowers after we moved in to the rental during 2011/2012 and her card said “I hope you can bloom where you’re planted” … turns out I couldn’t. I couldn’t bloom there, it was difficult beyond measure for all kinds of reasons. But out of that difficulty, out of that year, I wound up here. Fully intact. Fully aware. Fully alive.
And, cliche coming, the older I get the more I realize what it all really means. To be here, to be active, plugged in. To be joyful.
And it’s amazing. It’s time.
Happy Birthday, life. We really like you.
