|Progress in my closet|
I had a truly amazing day yesterday and I realized that I am not in this alone.
My sweet daughter texted me and said, "Mom, are you o.k?'
A dear dear friend called and said she felt we needed to connect and she apologized for telling me GG was the one when we started dating. I assured here that I and I alone am to blame.
I am beyond grateful for the support from all of you. I have made new friends all over including Florida and even in Venice and in my own community! Many of you have reached out with your own stories of survival and perseverance for which I cannot thank you enough.
My painter hand gold leafed the huge mirror frame in the dining room and it is stunning!!!!!!!!! Then he hand stenciled in gold, feather palm fronds in the panels below to represent the preserves. Amazingly gorgeous. Pictures this week, I promise.
I was driving back from Venice on 75 to pick up more things and the skies opened up and it was the worst driving conditions of my life. You could not see your lane or other cars or anything. Blinding. It was too dangerous to pull over. I was scared. Really gut wrenching scared. I said out loud, "I am really scared, help me," and within seconds the skies cleared and the rain stopped and it was blue skies and sun ahead. I hope this is a message that God, or the gods, or the universe, or karma has my back. I hope this was meant to be a metaphor. I think so. I hope so.
My new closet is happy too.
Is this a happy closet or what?
I screwed up and didn't take pictures, but the tandoori orange in the guest bath is wonderful. The countertops go in on Tuesday.
Three more days and I can breathe again.
Thank you all for joining me on this journey.
