Eyes on the horizon
You know how one can sometimes feel a bit lost in the turmoil of change? That's exactly what's happening in our family. This in-between place is awkward! Having a wonderful and exciting new beginning ahead of us (but being unable to actually move forward) is frustrating. We know this will pass and we know that we'll get there eventually (deep breath). Eyes on the horizon. Steady on.
We've been in regular contact with my parents (who are already at the new place) and we've all been making exciting plans for our future together. Ideas are springing forth and my mind is spinning with the practicalities of how we can turn this new property into a productive and diverse oasis of food. Many opportunities exist so it's hard not to get too excited... Eyes on the horizon. Steady on.
In the meantime, we are deep in the process of divesting. Our lovely laying hens have gone to their new home which is sad and happy all at the same time. It's one more step in the process of our relocation but it was a tough one... Eyes on the horizon. Steady on.
Before we know it, I'll be sitting in my rocker beside my Mom on that lovely front verandah sipping tea while watching our new chicks learn to peck and scratch. All will be well. Eyes on the horizon. Steady on.
