And this year feels particularly wonderful!
The Glimmer of Hope that I was feeling one week ago has become a shining beacon. Michael and Zachary are on Day Eight of their evolving relationship and I feel as if I am living in a new family. The conflict between them has completely shifted and the energy in our house is vibrant, happy and relaxed. I am parenting in a way that aligns with my deepest core values and I go to bed at night feeling like the kind of mom I always dreamed I would be. Simon comes home from England tomorrow and is excited to jump in and join us in our new way of being together.
To add to the delight at home, I have cleaned out cupboards, drawers, organized papers that have been accumulating and donated clothes that we no longer need or want. What a feeling of lightness when you let go of things that are no longer a part of your journey! More to come on that one for sure!
Yesterday I met with a new accountant and I am already over-the-moon happy with her. For the first time ever, I understand basic tax concepts. And, she drew me pictures while she was talking which just jazzed the visual learner in me. She is going to work in partnership with the new financial planner we are meeting on Monday so even our finances are going to feel bright and shiny! No more dreading those horrible brown envelopes from the Canada Revenue Agency which always seem to come bearing bad news!
