I am giving a gold star to our builder today for going above and beyond the call of duty. We had requested him to spruce up the entrance a bit for the safety of little trick or treaters. He did more than just sprucing. He installed the rails, the lights and even put up a temporary calling bell. Not only that, the leaves in the driveway and the rubble in the walkway were cleared.
Always a treat to be at the receiving end of a job well done! It enhanced the quality of our evening manifold and inspired us to strive for excellence in our pursuits.
Yes, I am very much alive and kicking. The lack of updates has been because I have been drowning in a sea of commitments. The few times I came up to the surface to catch my breath, I couldn’t make myself put pen to paper. I felt so out of touch. I felt like what I had to say was inconsequential. It felt like there was nothing left to say. Truth be told, life has been anything but normal these past few months. We have been working very hard as a family since this summer with barely any downtime. First, it was my dance production, then it has been renovation at home. I have also been volunteering like never before. The downside to all these activities is that there has been very little time for anything at all – to rest, to relax or to reflect. I do hope to make time and reclaim my life back. Slowly but surely and steadily!
