2 months and counting
Now, it is two months.
Things that were once new and exciting or frustraring are becoming every day. Everyday in a wonderful way.
I don't stand in the grocery store completely dumbfounded as to how to cook a meal. I know how to take the MTR without a vague sense of panic that perhaps I am going in the completely wrong direction. I have 'my' produce vendor they know me/I know them and it is comforting. These are all unto a sense of settling in and that is good.
But, the reality. I knew what we were giving up. We made the choice to follow the voice that calls. I don't miss our van, or our house, or even Great Canadian Superstore and all its millions of choices of cereals. I miss my friends and relationships. I miss seeing smiling face or talking on the phone and not feeling the need to explain who I am or why I am. There is great comfort in that sense of belonging. And I miss that. I do!
I see the beginnings of a relationship like that. It is precious to me. I am thank-ful.
But I still miss those faces that flash before me. To be held dear in a glance. To be understood. To be counted as precious.
I am not sad or dissapointed, just sharing my heart in transition tonight.
May you blessed today with community who love and support you!
