We have experienced the amazing grace of kindness.
In my last blog, The Best Laid Plans, I wrote about angels 1 – 4 who touched our lives when we needed them most.
On March 4th, camping in front of the fire of our emptied-out home, my cell phone rang. The new owners of our beloved river house, the home where we have lived for over eight years, were on the line. After we greeted one another, they said, “We would like to be your fifth angel. We would like to offer a two year lease.”
Oh, the emotions; spontaneous laughter at the unexpected gift of residence, tears at the very thought of moving back into this beautiful place, wonder at yet another angel, awe as we experienced many well meaning, good hearted people on the heels of one very awful man.
So, we will move back in June 1st. Meanwhile, we are comfortably settled in our temporary residence on the island where we have seen a moose graze on the hillside beyond our drive, watched deer nibble dinner across the channel, and been cozy and warm of an evening.
Our hearts are full.
