I am a little in awe of life at the moment. I’ve had a pretty rough run in recent years, and still have residue of those situations to contend with and clean out, but in the last few weeks really good things have been happening.

Simple yet vital things, like major strides in recovery of my ankle after surgery, and rather extraordinary things like becoming an auntie for the first time. With all the other things in between, I’m starting to feel like ME again… not because things are going well, but because I’m so much more invested.

My precious niece Abigail

I think the most fun thing that has occurred recently has been connecting with a rather fabulous man. It is quite early and he lives, oh, about 900 miles away, but it’s been an amazing start and I can’t wait to see where the journey, whatever its length and depth, will take me. It is all the permutations of possibilities that remind me to keep hoping for things in other areas of my life as well. (And yes, he’s following this blog, so no juicy details will be dispensed! Well, yet anyway. Hee-hee!)

It’s a bit like the opening of a flower – it’s a slow process, but every stage has it’s own beauty. I think the most significant part of these early stages has been the work I have put in. That’s where the reward lies… and even more so when I consider that this is exactly the part that I have control over. The energy and effort I give, the work I put in, is up to me. So here I go – work, work, work!


I just wanted to give a shout out to the wonderful people whom have chosen to follow me so early on – I’m excited to undertake this journey with you by my side. Cheers!

And why wouldn't you get some devoted followers? You deserve it just as much as you deserve things going right!

You are too good to me, Elizabeth! Thank you! And thank you for being the first, too!

Somehow I missed this post! I didn't realize he lived 900 miles away! Mine lives 1300 miles away. Good (sort of). We can commiserate the distance.

Oh my gosh, Lori - isn't it the WORST?? We just got off the phone at 1:30am - early for us - because you just want to be in the same room!

Oh my goodness! Yes! Sometimes it very nearly breaks my heart because he's seems so close, so real. And, yet, he's not really here. Oh, but he should be.
