Angels and Rainbows

I woke up this morning and walked in the kitchen and this is what I saw…

God’s light shining down in the most beautiful rainbow of colors!!

All I could think was wow! Boy did I need to see that this morning!

These last few months have been not the best in this 60 something-year-old’s life. I always try to focus on all of the good things I have in my life but some mornings you just don’t wanna get out of bed because you don’t know how you’re going to make it through the day.

I’ve had children to take care of since I was 19 years old. I had the pleasure of raising my oldest granddaughter from 2-1/2 years old until she turned 18 and then abruptly moved out. In a matter of days I became an empty nester at 61-1/2, with no time at all to prepare for it. It definitely wasn’t the way I had pictured it would be happening. But it’s not about me, everyone lives their own lives their own way.

You do everything you can, and you do it the best you think you can, and it doesn’t really matter a whole lot what you think because everyone that you do the things for sees it in a different way than you do. That doesn’t make you do it any differently, you still do it the best you know how to do it and hope somehow it has helped in someway shape them into a good decent human being.

Do they really know how much you love them? What could have I done better as a parent? When it’s time for them to go, it hits you like a ton of bricks!

It doesn’t help when everything else seems to be going not the way you planned it to go either. I thought growing up and dealing with all of the things you deal with as a parent was tough but I’m beginning to think it’s all tough, it’s just different things that you deal with at different times in your life.

It certainly is true what they say, some people just know that you need them without you saying a word. (You know who you are!❤️)

Then there are some that have absolutely no clue, or maybe they just don’t care to have a clue. I hope I am one who always has a clue no matter what’s going on and I’ve always tried to be there for the people I care about no matter, with no expectations.

I don’t know what the next 20 years is going to bring into my life, I’m just trying to make it through the day, but I know life goes on and you figure it out somehow…

Still trying to be a “Super Woman” til the day i’m no longer here.

VintageChicResale “1778 Walkey Estate” Tour

Way back in 2001 I was on the prowl for a “New Home”. I was living in a gorgeous old victorian home in Brockton, but just didn’t feel like I was “home”. One night, very late at night and lost coming home from the cape looking at houses, I was driving down this street & my headlights hit this for sale sign and this very interesting looking cape home. I stopped, backed up & investigated the property from the light of my car headlights and thought, I have to check this out when I get home. I wrote down the real estate office phone number and because I am myself a realestate broker, I went online and immediately found the house! To my dismay, it was out of my price range. I decided something was drawing me to this house so I made an appointment to look at it. I figured this house is calling me because it was in a town I didn’t have on my list and I was lost and just happen to stumble upon it. To make a long story very short, I fell in love with all the faults of the house and now live here. Everyone thought I was crazy to want to move from my big beautiful victorian to this small 1778 fixer upper. It desperatley needed a new roof and both bathrooms needed to be redone. There were not toilets, or kitchen sink or appliances, etc. But I felt so cozy and comfortable here, it felt like this was where I was meant to be. Moving day was the most crazy day I have had in a long time! My daughter was in the hospital in labor having my 2nd granddaughter! Between one of the runs, I was called to the hospital for the delivery. On top of that, the house we were moving from wasn’t a definate closing until the very last minute and so because it was the week of Christmas & the uncertainty of the move, I hadn’t finished packing! Then after being in this huge house for more than 7 years you forget how much stuff you actually have! It took us a week and a half to get everything out of the old house and into the new house. Most of the stuff didnt fit in the 1778 doorways so it got put in the barn and the garages until we could either get rid of it or figure out how to squeeze them into to the house! The end of this month will be my 6th year here and I couldnt be happier! I love my house and I love the neighborhood and my neighbors. I dont think I could have found a better place to move to!
