The last two weeks have passed in the blink of an eye. I did not get time yet to stand still and reflect on where I am. So I'm taking a moment to do that now, to sit a while and be grateful for where I am.
The weather today is very hectic and a bit scary - we had a terrible wind storm with sheets of rain in between. It is really cold and unpleasant outside. Yet, I am warm(ish) - I never warm up during winter... - and safe inside and I did not have to get up at 5:30 in the morning and rush to the office, getting rained on and blown about.
I now get to say good morning to my husband before he leaves for work. He returns for lunch and we eat lunch together. In the 10 years that we've been together we never had the chance to eat lunch together on a normal workday. I like it.
I got a vast amount of work done since there is no distractions.
My fur-babies keep me company and I love having the time with them.
Next week I'll be going to our CT office for 3 days. It will be great to see the people again and catch up a bit.
So yes, I feel very blessed and am grateful for my life at the moment. I'm also grateful that God's time is different than our own. That we haven't received "The Call" while our lives were up-side-down. That we are in a place now where we are happy and relaxed and ready to love a little child.
