Finally, I can say that 90% of the cardboard boxes are out of my house. Last Saturday, when I returned home from dropping J off at her driving lessons, I decided to load my car up with as many cardboard boxes as possible. Needless to say that it took five trips to the dumpster to clear the garage from empty boxes. We still have a few boxes, some still full, and some that I have emptied this last two days. The house is looking more like a home now.
We also hung some pictures, mirrors and house decorations. Oh, we also hung some plants, spider plants to be exact, on the front porch and they look lovely. It was a busy Saturday, that’s for sure, we got a lot done. Now, I am just waiting for my new dining room chairs to arrived, then I can take a picture to show you all my gorgeous table.
The next items I am looking for are for the entryway…so far Wayfair and World Market has been my to-go places for this new adventure.
How was your weekend? Was it a productive one? Share it with me…

As I sit here, in my new dining room, in the quietness of an empty house I find myself smiling in disbelief, I am so blessed. We started our journey in the year 2000…and almost 17 years later…we finally see the fruits of our labor, of our sacrifices, of the hard decisions we once had to make. No regrets! What once was difficult, today is much simpler, I would not have had it any other way.
Often times we are so busy that we forget to take a second of a busy day to take it all in. To see how far we have come, to see what we have done in all these years. Then God keeps on making things happen for us, and all of the sudden we realize that we are blessed beyond belief. After giving it some thought, the key is not giving up, not surrendering to adversity. Not throwing the towel at the sign of problems or difficulties, the key is to push forward, to fight harder, not to give up, to conquer it all TOGETHER. To support one and other when we crumble, to communicate, to listen, and to be understanding.
More challenges are ahead, more troubling situations, hard decisions that would come our way…it’s life. Life continues to happen and it is up to us to conform or to move forward with it. We choose to move forward, why stay idle? Where would that take us? Be adventurous, believe in yourselves and try new and different things. Reinvent yourself if you feel stuck, go fo it, do not wait for someone to make the decisions for you. Just do it! Life is only one, live it to the fullest.
