Writing from Dunedin, Florida, while in the midst of packing

I allowed myself to become attached to this house we made an offer on.
The deal fell through because our house in Chattanooga did not sell.
Sadness and disappointment came for a visit.
A week later our Chattanooga house sold
and we put an offer in on a small, modest house in Fernandina Beach
and the seller took four days to respond to the offer
and our realtor called us one day in a tizzy
and we thought we had lost the house
only to find that we could accept the counter offer
which we did
and a fresh breeze of enthusiasm came for a visit.
There are occasions when we have little to no control of what knocks on our door.
There are many, many more occasions where it is our attitude
that shapes what comes to visit
and instigates our wrestling with or hiding from what we’ve summoned.
