As I sit here tonight, this is what I see.
So peaceful and serene.
So soothing to my soul.
It has been a soul searching month.
I'm trying to regain my footing.
Things have been in a turmoil.
First losing my Dad.
And all the emotions that go along with such a loss.
And then some long planned for remodeling.
A new wood ceiling in an unused space.
Soon to be a new bedroom for Hubby and I.
Adding a new high energy pet to the family.
And for the last two days, having our roof re-shingled.
This is the old roof.
The noise and the mess is beyond insane.
My landscape is a shambles.
My pets are traumatized.
My nerves are completely fried.
And I have one more day of it.
So, as I say goodbye to July, I am glad it is over.
I am looking forward to the slow, peaceful days of August.
To the quiet times of ordinary days.
To putting things back in order.
And reflecting upon how life continuously changes.
With gratitude for all of my blessings.
And the legacy of my Father's life to pass on.
