Through my own choices my balance was rocked lately and I made a decision to step back and take stock. Time to reflect and just ‘be’ is a blessing.
There is a profound peace in this little cottage where I live and the walls that are over 200 years old protect and enfold me. I pottered yesterday and so many blessings floated up…..
I live on a hilltop looking out over fields and hills and the birds happily sing their freedom up here.
The traffic is a rural mixture of horses, tractors, battered land rovers and a very grumpy postman.
I unpegged my washing from the line yesterday and the setting sun caught the church tower at the side of our gardens.
Neighbours knock on my door all smiles and friendly offers.
There is a Pilates class in the village hall just over the brow of the hill on Monday evenings.
We are all going for a Spring walk on the May bank holiday ending with a picnic in a local wood. Homemade cake has been mentioned.
There is a real possibility of the closed pub building being turned into a village shop.
I have loving friendship links in all the surrounding villages. Friends that I have made with all the different things I have done in various places around the world and here we are in close proximity. Are we having fun catching up with each other? You betcha!
One of my clients looked across my sitting room on a recent visit and quizzed me about the things I make. I am now creating to add to the stock in her vintage gift shop.
There is synchronicity at work here with a balance that I have longed for.
I am grateful and content.
