We’ve spoken before about counting our blessings and living in the moment. The entire concept of intention has been on my mind lately.
Which means it connects to where the Universe wants us to focus right now.
My days off from the “day” job feel rare and rushed. We are still living partly out of boxes, re-buying shit we can’t find here in the new place. While at the same time discovering items we thought were lost forever. It’s very roller coaster-y.
But also, it is fulfilling in tiny and unexpected ways. Projects and tasks DO get accomplished. It is gratifying to see how far we’ve come, enjoyable to sit and merely BE in this space.
It is a simple kind of peace, in a wee abode we do not own.
I am actively practicing my In The Moment appreciation; pointedly, mindfully. Daily I gather around me the Gratitude Attitude and say my Thank Yous outloud. It is intentional, and it is healing.
In the place where our new altar will (eventually) be this is reflected perfectly by our visiting messenger.
Be persistent and inclusive and all obstacles will be overcome.
Mouse is tiny and gentle but no shell is so hard that she cannot reach the delicious center within, and no obstacle so tough that it cannot be overcome.
As your guide Mouse counsels persistence so you, too, may break through the barriers which block success.
Vulnerable to many, she must scrutinize and look beyond the obvious to the pattern within and assess the hidden agenda of others.
Emulate Mouse, and your path through life will be safe indeed.”

is to report on my office situation.
The update is, I now have a desk. On a freshly cleaned rug, over beautiful (probably 70 plus year old) hardwood floors.
We couldn’t find (nor afford) an antique Victorian style for me to pull my chair up to, but this one will do. For now.
Progress. It is technically happening.
(Additionally, there’s a ceiling fan in this room, it is more delightful than I ever could have imagined. I mean, moving air!)
