Lists being made everywhere. Paper holding plans and projects are littering every flat surface.
Things around here are all in plan~mode. After months going over and over plans and having the architect out here, who even knows how many times…we have plans we like. I mean that guy was out there shivering in the February cold…and now here we are. We got the plans back when the Canadians were here a few weeks ago…and low and behold the Canadian is a builder …and he had built exactly what we are putting in…so I bet the architect was ready to throw the plans at us and run. It’s funny how that works out…the exact right people being here at the perfect times. I can tell you this…my husband was ready to throw in the towel on the architect and the plans…the whole lot of it… but the energy that burst out in that room when those guys started pouring over the plans…. it changed everything. I don’t know if it would have happened if Alec (the Canadian,lol) wasn’t here at the perfect time. We are starting to expect things to line up this way. Decades I waited for that cello…and getting it along with an awesome musician to teach me is perfect timing. Provision.
As we sat around today…we really started to delve into what direction is next for us. Obviously we have no plans on leaving…just growing intensely where we are. It’s odd when you make a list of Family Priorites…. you would think certain things would be at the top….but they don’t even find themselves on the paper…and you find you have grown way past where you were a year or so ago. Things we never would have put in the plans…like kicking around the idea of going to Israel….rewind 2 years and I would have pursed my lips and scowled. I can’t even imagine what a list like this would have looked like 2 years ago…But I guess that is good. Growth right? Either way I guess I should not be surprised at my list of priorities… even the tiniest of papers attached to my tea strings reminds me of my worth.
