Yes, It's True...

 
 
 
My home is for sale.
As well as my dreams.
 
 
 
 
All is well.
Just not enough of me to go around.
 


 
 
Looking to downsize.
Probably a townhome.


 
 
I pray I can find one
that will give me a little spot to plant...
 
 

 
and a spot to hang a bird feeder...
or two.
 
 

 
 
Not sure how I'll survive
if I can't.

 
 
All I can do
is what I always do,
take one day at a time.
And pray.
A lot.




 
I hope it's the beginning of something good.

Jill, I am sorry you are having to go through this now. You will be in my prayers that you will find just the right place where you can plant your flowers that bring you so much joy...Sometimes in the letting go of one thing a much better is able to bloom....

Oh Jill I am so sorry but you are such a caring strong woman who has been through many tough situations in life and dealt with them with grace and wisdom this one is no different. You will find a house with a little garden and you are going to be just fine. I just know it. It is just another chapter in that wonderful, interesting caring life of yours. Yup fine I tell ya:)HUGS B

Jill, I pray that all of your needs and dreams are met.
After so many years its hard to let go and move on to something new but I'm positive there is a special place for you where you will be happy.

My thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers ~:)

What a huge step, Jill, but you have been thinking about this for a while so you are likely doing the perfect thing for you. You can always plant in containers to keep getting you hands dirty.

It must be so hard. I hope you find the perfect spot.

Jackie said...

Maybe you'll even be the grounds keeper and beautify the complex in which you live. Hoping you do get some space along with a new place to call home and many new memories to make.

Just found your blog through Tammy's.(Country Girl at Home) I too have my house on the market and it is very hard. BTW I also worked as a para for 30 years. The last 6 years were in training, para. A fun job to say the least. good luck with your house.

Jill, Look for something with a terrace or balcony. Change is never easy whether selected or imposed. In each of the end-of-the-year books I do for my classroom children, the last line on the very last page is always..."The last step of a journey, might be the first step of an even greater adventure". This is what I wish for you. Hugs! Bonnie

Moving is so stressful. I hope you find that perfect place.

Downsizing is good! It will free up all kinds of other things for you. There's all kinds of places out there.....and you'll find something:) Stay positive and it will be okay!:)

Willow said...

Sending good wishes for finding the right new spot for you.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Jill, I'm sorry this is a hard time, but I know you're going to get through this. And my prayers are with you. Downsizing can be a very freeing experience. And I just know that you're going to find a place with all that you need, including a place for plants and bird feeders.

Dear Jill, Life is full of turns, I understand what you are going through with the unknown of what is to come.
Please be strong and pray. He will guide you and keep you. I will pray for you. I do believe in miracles.
Blessings my dear friend. Catherine xo

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

OH! I am sending up a prayer for you as you go through some major changes! Good things to come! Good things to come!

I know what it is like to have to move and downsize. When I divorced my husband I did just that. I left the bog home for a 3 bedroom townhome. I was happy though. It did take some time to adjust but I managed with my 2 girls. They were 9 and 7 then.
you will be fine. You are a very positive and independent woman. God is with you and will continue to be with you. beautiful flowers. TFS ana

Rosemary said...

Sometimes when we change things up, we get the chance to discover new things about ourselves. Here's to your new adventure, wishing you luck, happiness and some wonderful surprises :) Bring some of your garden with you, something old, something new...

Susan said...

Me too, me too. I'm feeling kinda thinned out myself. I hope it's gonna be a really good move for you.

Good luck with the move, Jill! I hope everything works out well.

Lynne said...

I think it is a great beginning for something new. All the best Jill!

Rose said...

I hope you bring your beautiful dreams to you new place.

I, too am considering moving but a lot holding me back right now. Ugh.

I wish you the very best!

Jeanne said...

The worst part is the uncertainty. Once you are on level ground and have made a decision everything will work out just fine. Have faith.

Nancy said...

Maybe a little house with a big garden? Have been thinking of you since I found out about the move. Take care. xo

Chatty Crone said...

Friend - it sounds like you don't want to move. I am sure you can find a townhouse with a little 'green'. sandie

Marissa said...

I don't know the story, I've been away from the computer for a long time, but I've read this post and and wanted you to know I'll be praying that everything works out just fine for you.
