I was shopping yesterday and saw this card. I had to buy it. The caption is:
“Having a place to go is a home. Having someone to love is a family” Donna Hedges
Jack and I have decided to move into town. We want a bigger place, one that can more easily accommodate family, visitors and overnight guests. Our house is sweet but tiny. Plus, I really like the idea of being able to walk to the library, bank, post office and coop. As we drove around Cambridge looking for possible homes, I started to feel those old familiar doubts: Will we be able to find a place that we like as much as this one? What if we don’t like living in town? If we get a bigger home will the costs be a lot bigger too? How will this all happen? I know better than to entertain these thoughts. I know that I need to imagine what I want and not what I fear or don’t want. I know that there is a power that is way beyond my reasoning mind; one that works “behind the scenes” bringing all elements together for perfect solutions. I know what to think…I know what to do, but sometimes I let my mind run away with me and then I start to feel off.
I told Jack that I was going to “turn this over” to Spirit and let a solution unfold. He said “good”. A few minutes later, I said, “When we get home, before we go to Bennington to buy cat food, I want to get on-line and see if there are any houses that are listed but don’t have signs up.” He laughed and said, “I thought you were turning it over?” Oh, right.
I need to remember that what I really want is a home filled with love, happiness and peace. I cannot move to, or buy, this place…I need to be it first. I am working on that.
