"all it takes is a little faith, and a lot of heart, sweetheart."



I stood here, overlooking this view, at a property today. I stole as many minutes alone as I could... going over again and again in my head the changes that are upon me. Change has taught me how to be adaptable, to be stronger, and it has taught me that it can bring a more beautiful life, too. It can be scary, but I really feel ready for it, ready for the challenge and for the differences it will bring.

The place I come home to will change next month. This is unexpected and I was resistant at first, but I can't believe how blessed I am to have people in my life who will go great lengths to help me and have me near. More details another time...

My job is changing. This is a development that is a long time coming, but it is evolving differently than I expected. Like everything else, I suppose. So, I continue with Mary but alongside that, something new awaits as of the New Year...

And then, there's the change that has lost me sleep, texts me in a different language, taught me how to make a pasta sauce, likes to make people laugh, and asks how my day was... So yeah, there's that.

It all amounts to a lot, doesn't it?

Love that view. Let's buy the place. Okay.

Also, what's this about job changes? I expect full details in person asap.
