"WITH YOUR FACE TO THE WIND"



https://youtu.be/skU5D7MB4Eo


And so the direction is set - our faces to the wind - a journey north-west to upstate NY - where my eldest daughter awaits - with open loving arms and heart - saying it is "her turn now to be there for me"  The blessings in this fill my spirit with hope and joy and renewed faith.  
As I shared in the post before this one (which no one commented on-huh!)  anyway - I kept candles in all the windows for over 10 years so she would be guided by the light to find her way home.  And so she has in matters of the heart she is "home" with me - my baby-girl came home.  
Having her and my grandchildren waiting on the other end of this emotional journey gives me strength to carry on - keep moving. Our new home is only ten minutes from where she lives.  And my other daughter is planning on moving near us come Spring. My son told me he will always find his way to me - always.  
I am blessed.

No matter what our pain, having our children and grandchildren share love and time with us
is the ultimate gift. As a mother, I am happy for you.

What a blessing to read....
I left a comment on your previous blog after I read this.
I'm not blogging right now, Gail.
But, it warms my heart to read that you and your daughter and Grandchildren are back together again. I'm thankful for that....and for your friendship.
Hugs,
Jackie

There is such peace and so many blessings in this post. I'm so happy that you are being loved and cared for in the way that you do for others. No words - only smiles, from this side of the state :)

Love to you dear friend.

You're in a similar boat to ours. We'll be resettled by the start of the new year. I never wanted to live with my children, but life throws us curves, and we need to adjust. Good luck with your move. Packing up this house is exhausting.

Gail said...

Hi Muff so good to see you. It is a tough move for us all - and I didn't realize you would be living w/your children. My daughter will be just 10 minutes away and she is happy to be there for me for us as is needed. I do like that feeling. Rest in between your packing a will I.
Love Gail
peace....

I apologize for the messed up attempts to blog.

My wife had MS for 27 years and we had a very nice life within our little world.

I also live in Clinton, CT.

I wish you the very best on your travels.

Friendships and family are the best this world has to offer.
