Been Thinking

We had a very simple Christmas at the Little Blue Cottage.  I baked small batches of goodies and made up little packages for neighbors which the boys handed out on Christmas morning.  Have enjoyed visiting with family the past few days.  Could not help myself from crying at times.  It is very hard to let go of what I have.  The Lord has been speaking to me about it, telling me His grace is sufficient, that He cares for me.  That I need not wallow in the "whys", nor throw a pity party or remain in misery.  What I need to do is accept all of what He wants to do for us.  I need not understand why, I just need to hold on to His hand so He can help me through.  Part of His help is coming through my readers and I am very thankful for your kind words.  You are all a blessing!

I have been thinking of the house on the hill in Colorado wondering how it will feel to live there.  Wondering what it will be like to live in snow and experience spring.  The house is vintage 1960's and I wonder how I will be able to make it homey.  I've also thought of blogging from there and decided to open a new blog leaving this blog as a memory of my Little Blue Cottage.  I have not decided on a title for the new blog yet, although my friend Fairmaiden at Sea Cottage gave me a couple of great choices.  I will be blogging from the Little Blue Cottage till the end of January 2010. Then we will move to temporary housing and wait for our belongings to catch up with us.  I will have internet access while in temporary housing, but the house on the hill does not have internet access.  Definitely the connection will have to be put in fairly quick because Mark needs it for work.

Otherwise, I am having trouble with my tummy.  On our trip to Denver it flared up bad.  It may have been due to stress, PT or both.  When we got home I thought it would let up, because I was home, but it has kept up.  Tomorrow I go to PT in the morning.

A new blog for a new beginning sounds like the right thing to do, dear friend. :o)

I like your idea for starting a new blog and leaving your old one for a memory.

Becky, I sincerely hope you are feeling better! I am praying for you!

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

So, I can keep your Little Blue Cottage link on my sidebar:O)

Why do you go into temporary the house on the hill not ready to move directly into? When will you be moving into the house on the hill?

You will make so many tree friends there:O) But I understand your grief...I am one whom gets attached to the tiny things like trees and roses in my gardens. And have experienced sorrow and pain in leaving them.

Fairmaiden, we will fly on a plane, most likely getting to Colorado before our things arrive in the moving van. We will move into the house on the hill sometime in Feb.
