It can be a challenge to stay in gratitude when busyness overtakes.

I am so busy with the move right now that my life easily gets overshadowed with lists, boxes, to dos, schedules and the like.  The results of that are stress, bickering over stupid things, not eating well, worry and just a feeling of not being in synch–what should I do next with the general feeling and oh yeah, I need to do it all by myself!

Last night Mike and I dropped back and punted as they say.  We stopped in our tracks and talked about all the things were grateful for, how much we love each other and how we need to savor this move and these things we are doing right now–not get overtaken by them!  We have never bought a house together and set it up together–what a blessing that is!  The new house is perfect for us to share our life in and to share and live out our dreams in.  That is where we need to focus. AND we are not in this alone– we are a partnership in this and the other’s “go to person!”

Being grateful for everything we have to do, every box, every list, every schedule– we are 11 days away from the exit load.  We would not be experiencing this were it not for so many pieces falling into place the least of all being married to each other.

Grateful, grateful, grateful…
