There are never enough moments in a day to do everything but there are plenty to accomplish the truly important things.
I have a notebook by my bedstand that says Take Some Time. Each time I look at it, I am reminded to be deliberate in everything I do- to pick and choose those important things carefully, and those things are often based around RELATIONSHIPS, not activities.
And so... I wanted to take some time to thank each of you for your amazing encouragement these last few weeks! I may not be able to personally write a note to every one of you right now, but I can't let another day go by without showing my gratitude.
Thank you to the several women who have emailed me privately their own stories and dreams of owning a home and/or moving and shared with me words of wisdom/encouragement.
Thank you to the friend from church who made a wonderful meal (and BROWNIES!) for our family and who shared a card so lovely I sighed.
Thank you to my sister who came and helped me with two batches of pears this morning. Two extra hands and two wagging tongues were more help than you could imagine!
Thank you to the bread maker extraordinaire who is taking over my church-bread-making responsibilities for the next two weeks so that I can focus my attentions elsewhere.
Thank you to you gal pals who have sent precious paper to my mailbox with such encouraging words.
Thank you for all the lovely comments that are showered upon me every time I share with trepidation a picture of a room of junk or a wall of water stains or a floor of old boards.
If I could hug you through a computer I would. If my computer screen were some sort of garden zinnia transporter, I would pick armfuls for you. Instead, here is a picture of the last garden bouquet of the year. For you. With thanks.
You know who you are.
