I hope everyone had a wonderful, joyous holiday!
I had an unusually chaotic week, as the holiday was bookended with house showings — but the very good news is that we signed an offer on our house over the weekend. Fingers crossed that everything proceeds smoothly. We’ve spent nearly two years in real estate limbo, and I can’t believe that this protracted process might really be coming to and end. Now, to negotiate on the new house, and try not to fall into panic mode.
While trying to take a deep breath, I was reminded of this beautiful video from writer Kelly Corrigan, who articulates so vividly the strength that women draw from the sisterhood we share with other women. (Thanks to Rebecca for the video link.) Without question, this blog is evidence of the sisterhood.
I just checked out your blog and saw the link to the Kelly Corrigan video. Several people sent me this same link over the past few weeks, and I am currently reading her book, The Middle Place. She’s a funny writer, and you don’t have to have breast cancer to understand her experience of parenting, being parented, and trying to understand the needs and pulls of both.
this is lovely.
and congratulations on the offer!
Miranda, this video brought tears to my eyes. I love it.
P.S. Congratulations on the house offer! Crossing my fingers.
