still trying to find my home and a gift to keep me busy while i search...

Happy Saturday evening.
I have been away trying to find a place to call home.
This has been much more difficult than I had imagined.
I haven't given up and am trying to search everyday,
with an occasional tear or two.

In the breaks between searching for a place to live and doctor appointments for something new every week, I was given a wonderful, empowering gift from my Sissy:


I had already started the book "The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brene' Brown.
I saw her on one of Oprah's Life classes on OWN TV station.
Her words and perspectives really resonated with me,
especially realizing how wonderfully imperfect I really am!
For more info on the class, go HERE!

I did find a mobile home that would be a perfect fit for me.
The spare bedroom has a half bath, how PERFECT for my studio!
A sink (and toilet) in my art studio.
The rest of the house is just as good.

The only problem is the inspections have found the house needing some serious repairs.
So I have taken a break from paperwork and inspections
to come out from hiding,
although not for long as I will have to really figure out what I need to do with all this information I have now on the house.

I really thought it would be easy.
I am praying everyday for my home and myself to find each other.
Whether it is this mobile home or another,
The right one will be shown to me.

I have several new doodles done,
now I need to take pictures of them.
Where did I put my camera?

Big hugs and have a great rest of the weekend!

You've really said it all with your positive attitude, Robin. You have a strong intuition and the brains to listen to it, so you will find the home that's best for you! I'm just sorry that it is taking longer than you had hoped. Know that I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!! Hugs, Darnell

Hey girlfriend! I just came in from shovelling snow and running a few errands and did a little happy dance in my seat when I saw you came for a visit to my blog and commented on my BHM post. I let myself go with that post and after I put it live, I started to think oh my goodness, the readers are going to think I'm just an angry black lady! And no one commenting made it worse but your words my darling told me it was alright to let it out and share my true feelings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now, on to your post. I sadly have not visited in some time and need to catch up with you on what is going on. You are looking for a new home? How are you feeling? I will go back and read so you don't have to rehash. I am a strong believer that everything will be alright and I know for a fact, if you are looking, you will find a place that meets your needs very soon.
Now you got a great sister. I love listening to Brene Brown and I wish I could take that class with you. I watched her on TED and OWN and love her. I have The Gifts of Imperfection but haven't read it yet. Maybe when I do we can talk about it. I am going to go grab some tea, all this shoveling in New England is really taking it's toll.
Hugs to you and sending blessings your way my friend,
Belinda
