When I last posted, the sky was looking pretty black.
The buyer for my house was notified that the school district was eliminating his job and he would only have a job for two more weeks, the exact number of days until the scheduled closing of the house. He contacted the union and the union spoke with the school district, reminding the school district officials that they must move him to any open position. There is one.... He now has employment again.
No need to sweat, the sale is back on.
Saturday I had arranged for a U Haul to move the things that I am storing and some items to my daughters houses that they wanted. The lower level is now empty and half of the upstairs. The rest of the contents need to be packed and the some furniture are on Craigs List with the remaining furniture to be donated next week. It was a long day but with that done it now feels more like the end is finally in sight.
My daughter has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility and will need to stay there until she can transfer with assistance to her wheel chair. She will have assistance at home and after the house closing I will move my little trailer to her house until she is feeling stronger. I can work on getting every thing take organized and ready for take off. It is wonderful to have this flexibility in my life and I am so grateful that this happened before I left the area so that I can be of help to her for a bit until she is back to normal.
Yesterday it poured rain just because it can. After all it is Spring and it rained buckets and buckets without any help from me. I sat in my favorite chair and watched the clouds and rain roll in and over the quiet valley and just experienced the quiet recovering from the demands of the moving day.
At times in my life, I have fussed when things haven't gone the way I wanted. I have worried. I cried. I sometimes yelled. I paced from window to window in my house. I wallowed in my own misery and complained loudly to anyone who would listen. And I must admit, it changed nothing.
This morning the blue sky reappeared
and the birds
have returned to the feeder
by my window seat.
Every thing seems right with the world.
"If a problem has a solution, there is no need to worry.
If a problem doesn't have a solution, there is no need to worry."
I choose to find peace and happiness in each day regardless of the circumstances.
