30 Days of Gratitude…Day 4…..

Lately, I’ve been missing “home”, my little cottage abode in Sacramento.

I feel it calling me, with it’s comforting, soft colors, relaxed easy feel, and comfortable furniture.

Home is where I have my collection of crystals, needlepoints, and wooden pieces waiting to be decoupaged.

It’s like an old familiar friend calling me.

I’m in my second year of living part-time in Hawaii, part-time in Sacramento.

Even though I’m not retired, nor am I employed by any company, I’ve had the opportunity to explore my options, make enough money to survive, and I only have my family to thank for that.

While I’m in Hawaii my family keeps the home fires burning in Sacramento.

Wherever I am, I find ways to generate income by helping others, and selling things I’ve collected.

Today the thought occurred to me that I would love to have a home in both places, continue to go back and forth.  Why not?  I’m already doing it.

I’ve not been able to make a decision, or choose between the two places, picking one over the other as my destination of choice.

And for now, I’m okay with that.

I feel so much gratitude for the family members who have allowed me to come and go.

I call in blessings to them for their generosity of Spirit, as I have been truly blessed.

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.

  1. Your home in Sac is very warm and welcoming. It has your true essence there. I truly understand wanting to be with family and longing for home. We made the very difficult decision to stay here in Colorado, instead of moving to California where most of my family lives. Now it is time to make our house our home. I am grateful even if I don’t know what the next step is.
