Two years ago we moved from our country home with our pool, large yard and orchard. It was a lot of work and we decided that we should downsize a bit and move where we would connect more with the community. We also do not have as big of a yard and are not tied to working outside nearly as much. In theory this is a great plan however, hard for this country girl. It has taken much of those two years to really enjoy our new home. We have worked through updates in almost every room. It is a 1907 home that was flipped in 2000.
Writing a book, working on projects, doing flowers for a wedding, keeping up with current ministries and trying to still have time to reflect. Yes, the ideas and colors and designs are swirling in this girls head. That is why I write lists. I am a great procrastinator. I accomplish a lot but staying focused is difficult for me.
In recent years I have come to be thankful for God making me the way I am. This was not easy for me and I still stuggle. I am quirky, scattered, and I change topics constantly. I am so thankful for dear family and friends who love me anyway. And because He made me this way I care for others and want to reach out to those in need. So I have quit lamenting and am learning at 58 to embrace who I am.
I hope you appreciate yourself for all your idiosyncrasies.
