The midgies (tiny flying bugs) flitter around.
They looked so pretty in the sunbeams, dancing above my rose bushes (more like sticks) and white alysiums.
I wanted to take a picture but doubted a photo would do the pure whimsy any justice.
I didn't have my phone on me to take one anyway.
Some things are just meant to be enjoyed in the moment.
It doesn't have to be recorded, you dont even have to remember it, just as long as it makes you feel something in that moment, that's all that matters.
So while this is an amazing milestone for me, I'm now faced with the stress of trying to do all the renovations I have in mind.
Where to start?
What should I prioritize?
Did I make a mistake in buying?
Which child should I sell to get some money to get started? (I am kidding!!)
So while I am so proud of myself for achieving this on my own, I am really feeling the weight of the future that I now will tackle on my own.
'It is what it is'
So while my hair turns even greyer and my worry lines get deeper, I need to focus on the good stuff.
I have not just a house, a home!
I have a safe place for my children to grow up in.
Somewhere they can always come back to any time in life.
This poor old roof has protected us from storms for the most of 11 years. The walls hidden us from the scary world. It has kept us safe, warm, and together.
It is what it is.
It is home.
