Playing with water in our own backyard - a dream realized. As I leave my custom condo with a huge soaking tub and new everything (which equals to diddly squat) except for the tub which will be the only thing I miss - My family and I enter into a 110 year old homestead. A big stone house with a big yard full of weeds I mean gardens and a lovely old fashion neighborhood. I am in love and I too played in water today - a bucket full of water and cleaned two very dirty windows with only 23 more to go. If I think too much on the number of windows I start to panic...how am I going to dress them all?!#! And what will it cost?! Then the screaming and whining starts and I am brought back to two little girls who feel unsure about all that is unfolding - yet so terribly excited. So after some of my own yelling and screaming - and a few deep exhales a friend offered to take Ella and I settled Vivian in for a nap. I took a long salted bath, then sipped a cup of tea and made a sign from the little ones watercolor paper collection and wrote "Slow down and enjoy the process." I put it by the sink - so I will be reminded a few times a day of this very important detail that I often overlook when I am so excited. I am overwhelming myself. I need to stop and become aware of what my ultimate goal is - to create a loving home, yes, but more importantly to have a happy family. Oh dear, I need help. Perhaps a squirt of Rescue Remedy and a good night's sleep will do the trick.
Thank you all for the many blessing you have sent to me and my family.
Much love and Namaste!
