Moving Week

Posted by

Moving week… the apartment is officially under attack! Boxes, clothes, books, knick knacks…It looks like an explosion.

Moving always brings mixed feelings to me but good mixed feelings. I highly enjoy going through our stuff and downsizing before each move. For me, I believe it is a way of blessings people. We blessed people with kitchen and bathroom items as well as some furniture and clothes. It is like a way of making room for the new chapter and season of my life. I get rid of some things to welcome new ones not only in a material way but in a spiritual way as well. Talking of new chapter… Do you think we have too many books?

I also enjoy stumbling across things I have not seen in a while. For example, I stumbled across a notebook that we had out on our wedding day and in which people wrote blessings and notes for us. I also came across another notebook that was used for my 20th-birthday. My sisters had organized a surprise party and they had put together a book with pictures of me when I was little and guests wrote birthday blessings and wishes. Looking at blessings from the past is such a treasure for our lives. Just like Psalms 103 says: Bless the Lord O my soul and remember all of his blessings!

I also found my lighting bug from when I was a little; my Winnie the Pooh that a good friend of mine gave me years ago. That Winnie the Pooh is dear to my heart as my friend passed away at a very young age. He used to play the violin…. I believe he is playing in heaven for God now.

Anyway… more coming later. Next time I write, we should be out of NYC and settled in our new apartment around Washington D.C.
