Tell Me Something Good – Flexibility and Support
it’s been quite the week, hasn’t it? i am pulling hard on gratitude otherwise i can very easily be pulled into the dark depths of the sadness that our world can contain. i am grateful to be writing this post while eating fresh fruit and staring at the emerald green coast of panama city beach, florida while we visit ravery’s parents.
my tell me something good this week also has to do with them!
are you ready for it?
they are leaving their beachfront property and moving to colorado at the end of next month!!! that’s right, they are moving their whole lives to be close to this little grandbaby that is brewing!
this is the view from their balcony of where we eat breakfast:
it has been such a fun and positive experience these past few months to have immediate access to my parents so i know adding them to the mix will enhance it all the more! not only that, but since my mother-in-law is newly retired (hoooray, congrats mama A) she has offered to take care of our baby as much or as little as we want/need! how amazing is that?! i’m sure my father-in-law will be right there with her for the majority too – we are so lucky and do not take this lightly!
my in-laws are people of action. many people might say “oh i’d love to live on the beach” but few actually do it. three years ago they took action on their big dream and made living on the beach a reality – something i really admire about them. the minute we said we were having a baby, they said “oh we are moving to wherever you are!” (if you haven’t watched the video where we tell my mother-in-law i’m pregnant, it’s right here and you should because her reaction is SO good!)
i am so grateful that they have the means, flexibility and desire to move and support us as this next chapter for us unfolds. now ravery and i just need to convince our sisters to move to colorado too 😉 we feel so grateful that our daughter will get to grow up with all of her grandparents so close!
oh and one more very good thing – yesterday my grandparents officially celebrated their 60th wedding annivery! we had a party to celebrate them over christmas, where they revealed their perfect advice for being married 60 years! we are also grateful that our kid will have the best great-grandparents too. happy anniversary nana and papa!
there is still a lot of goodness all around. it’s important we keep sight of this and bring it to the forefront of our minds and lives.
what goodness do you have around you today?
