Got my own place to live!....and Enigma..."Return to Innocence" video

Hi all....Hope you enjoy the video below....it's one of my favorite songs by Enigma. The video is well done with beautiful pics of wild life animals and nature.

I just got finished signing the last of the "finalized" paperwork for my new apartment! Yes, I move in towards the end of March or beginning of April! After more than two years of not having my own place to live this is such a blessing and such a gift...but I know in my heart that my constant discipline of learning to be patient, trying not to give up (which was so darn hard) and my perseverence paid off, along with knowing that spiritually I was being watched over in light.

March has always been my favorite month of the year, for I always love all the different aspects of weather through this month...it's kind of like getting all the seasons of the year through the month.....snow, rain, dark clouds, puffy white clouds, storms, sun, wind, cold. warmth. I love it! But every March throughout my life it also seems that I get these miracles, gifts, and "dreams come true" that happen. Well, it will be my Birthday soon (March 11th) and my wish of getting a place to live for my Birthday has come true!...the best gift I could ever receive.

I will be doing a lot within the next month of organizing my move and since I've no furniture, I will be going to good will, target and wall mart stores to look for a few things that I hope to find and able to afford. It's a strange feeling of "starting fresh" no matter how little I have...through all this one of the main things I've learned is that "things" are just that "materialistic things" and they are not what I value in life...I'm happy with just what I need in order to live....."A simple life". So, this is one of the main things I have learned...something for all of us to think about, "our possessions"....is that what makes us happy? I think that's a good question and some food for thought.

See you soon after my move.

Love and Blessings to all of you..and thank you so much for all your kindness and friendships.

Such wonderful news, Rhi. You have shown us all how to experience simplicity with gratitude and grace. And thank you for sharing the sweet video with us in celebratory union of friendship. You deserve the best birthday ever....and it seems you are about to have it!

After leaving my previous comment I was inspired by you and another blogger to write a post in my Clutterquake blog. I linked to this post of yours.

You can read it after you get settled. And thanks again.

I was so glad to hear of your good fortune that I smiled each time I thought of it that day. You deserve happiness and a space to work to your own desires and preferences.
My girl's birthday was the 7th; happy birthday to you, many Pisces about it seems.
I think that we like the old places and old times and old folks because of our curiosity as to how they lived; I know that I do. Evenings before gaslight reading maybe the only book in the house. Probably going to bed at dark, waiting for the sunlight to open a new day. Then comes electric and staring at the radio (this habit always intrigued me, perhaps prep for TV) staying up later to fill free time with books, magazines, letter writing or games. Expanding thoughts and contact with the lives of others. Kinda like blogging now, I expect.
I always like the old photos too. The sepia color and everyone usually dressed to the 9's for a family photo. I usually bother other diners when the restaurant posts old photos and I am wandering around perusing each one for clues and detail.
I guess we are creatures of the past, after maybe having lived there. Who knows??

Open windows and let in the scents of an Oregon spring (we lived in St Helens in '77): all I recall of spring are the wonderful scents hanging in the dense humid air, mostly pine it seems.

Enjoy
