What a week! Here at chez mere-et-filles, we’ve had upended plans (Sara’s closing was delayed … which meant lots of logistical shuffling), a sick dog (again, and again she seems to have rallied), and another surgery for Marc (this time oral surgery to remove a “scary lump” – his oral surgeon’s words – from his jaw). As I sit here Friday evening, we seem to be beyond the hardest parts and I’m glad to share a look at Right Now:
Thinking about … how to balance Looking Back and Looking Forward with being Present. I want to find space for all three … I just need to figure out how that works in a healthy way.
Grateful for … these last TEN months with Sara. She closed on her new home today; she’s moving in this weekend. Living with someone creates a special kind of intimacy. and that kind of bond with my adult daughter is a blessing I cherish. I’m also grateful to be helping with the move! Setting up a kitchen is my special talent … and this is going to be my fourth time sharing that with Sara.
Fun … my sister is celebrating a birthday on Sunday and we gathered at my mom’s this afternoon to celebrate.
also, Bananagrams with five players goes really fast!
Thankfully there isn’t any snow in our forecast, but I know that’s not the case for many of you. Sending y’all our best Georgia wishes for blue skies (the photo above is from yesterday’s morning walk) and wishing everyone the best weekend available. I’ll see you next month!
