If that is true - then "Let my garden grow!!"
Tomorrow I have a big day, as far as possible "transitional living" can go. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to at least "see if" I am a fit somewhere. There is a possibility for yet another adventure, and to be honest with you - no matter how I would like to down play it, it sort of fills me with hope.
What can I say- I romanticize the little things?! ;-)
It may not work out, and it might work out... but that's the beauty of hope - it gives you SOMETHING to look forward to. If nothing else, I can chalk it up to experience.
I am hopeful about a hand full of really good stuff...
1. - Possible job!
2. - Fall - yes, blessed, oh perfect - fall is just around the corner. I L-O-V-E that time of year.. and I know without a doubt in one month, we will start to see little hints of it. THAT'S exciting.
3. Football season. Don't laugh. I don't actually follow football, nor do I enjoy watching it - but I LOVE knowing it is here. There is something so "community-esque" about it, and ... well.. 'fall.' It's just Americana at it's finest.
4. Ramadan ending (I will get my egyptian back! He is deeeeeeeep in fasting now. 1/2 way there!)
5. Finally - there is something comforting about seeing the school buses on the road. It's like the world is back to normal.
I don't know.. maybe I am seeing that little ray of sunshine poke through. Somehow, someway.. this personal nightmare will be coming to an end soon..
I look forward to that day.
PS - Lost another baby. My parents just called (right as I was about to post this - that my cat, Snowflake died about 15 minutes ago. :-( )
