the house is back to quiet for a bit. guests have gone.
the other half of my people arrive tomorrow. and then we are four.
i was thinking this morning, how we get so off balance (or at least i do) when things we are comfortable with change on us. it's not the summer we envisioned back in march. but sitting here in this quiet library, with this view, it entered my mind how just when i think life is so crazy, suddenly my appreciation for 'what is' seems to soar.
somehow, i find it easier to think about the positives. maybe it's watching the gulls splash in the cove, or how the light changes in the fog, or maybe it's just the anticipation of having my family together for a few weeks.
it doesn't really matter what.
i'm counting my blessings.
