And so it is true - we arrived safely here in Western New York to our new Homestead in Hemlock Hills Park -
It was a very long drive especially since we went through a huge snow/ice storm which added almost thee hours to our trip. I believe 'Jesus' took the wheel and guided us safely through. Our home is lovely - in a small quaint wooded community.
I have certainly been challenged to find a new rhythm in our new home. Every turn and corner, hallway and function requires my/our careful attention and plan for safety, ease and confidence. At first I felt I would not be able to navigate with any feeling of certainty - as time has passed I am finding my rhythm and comfort. We have made adjustments and rearranged the layout for easier and safer movement about. It is difficult to move to a new home and even more so when one has to consider the safety needs of living with a disability such as MS.
Come on in and take a look around - set a spell - k?
Our living room and kitchen
Great kitchen - love the shadow boxes - great space for our herbs and spices
The relaxing reading-music-computer room. I so enjoy this room
Our cozy lovely bedroom
The extra bedroom for family and friends to visit. Nice, huh?
And so we are here - I have yet to venture out due to the weather and my own weakness from the major transition and energy needed to gain my balance and rhythm, strength and confidence. I am working on it. I am getting ready!! I do miss my/our life in Connecticut. I m honoring that loss as I embrace our new life and adventures. Skipp and I are thrilled to be together here, any where - we are blessed by such love.
Being back in close touch with my eldest daughter Kristie is a gift beyond words. And her children are beautiful. I have missed them for a long time - but not any more. And so it goes - life that is - each day a challenge and a blessing - laughter and tears - fear and hope - joy and sadness - wonder - hope - faith - and above all else LOVE
