Friends are the true wealth.
One day I will write about the ways dear ones have bridged gaps for us in the last few months. I am grateful beyond measure. The road is still long ahead, but little by little we will emerge to a new, more manageable life–I pray.
Anyone who knows my heart knows that I prefer giving and sharing. In fact, I have to self-talk that it is ok to receive. It is ok to accept help. It is ok to allow people into our mess.
When I shared the latest stalled house sale update with my mastermind group, the ladies jumped in with their talents to do what they can. I am sure the words “stuck” and “tired” glow on my forehead.
One of the masterminds, Jill, is an interior designer. She offered to come New Years day to transform the blank front room of our house. “Staging” a home is important. She brought an SUV full of items and went to work.
What once was empty and lacked imagination now has a welcoming vibe with pops of color.
I suspect when people walk in they will smile. Jill is a genius. Here is a link to some of her great home decorating advice. I will add more links to her blogs and website later.
This is a short post because I must get back to getting the house ready for a new realtor. I will sort and pack as much as I can today.
This hymn’s song lyrics play through my head often:
“He said ‘Freely, freely you have received; freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.”
I visualize a life where my capacity grows and I can be more supportive to others again.
