“We shape our dwellings, and
afterwards our dwellings shape us.”
-Sir Winston Churchill
The construction is done in our little one’s room, so I’ll start caulking and painting today.
I walked in there yesterday afternoon…just to sweep and dream for a bit.
I think I swept more dreams than dust.
It’s in those moments that I can really feel the future of this space.
We haven’t received the invitation to travel this month, so it’s looking more and more like we’ll be bonding with our babe in February or March.
Truth be told, I’ve never felt like it was going to be January.
I’ve always felt late February.
Secret be told, my Grandma showed me February 26 in a dream last year. She held out her tiny, old wristwatch (which I still have) and there it was, clear as a bell, engraved onto the back side: 2-26.
The morning after I had the dream, I got up and went straight for the watch.
Hmmmmmm? Could it be the day? The day we’re officially matched with our boy? The day that we travel to Haiti?
Feels weird to type that out loud, but who knows, right?
Shaping dwellings is my passion, but when I stand in his room, I can feel my passion aligning with a Purpose…no matter which pillows and paint colors I choose.
PS- For those wondering, the old shutter doors are 100% sealed (multiple times) and 100% chip-proof thanks to a product called Peel Stop. Once they had fully cured, Brian the Carpenter found it difficult to even scrape off a small section of the surface with his (very sharp) utility knife so that he could install the hinges. Peel Stop creates a very hard and protective surface, so I feel very comfortable about the everyday handling, and opening & closing of these doors.
