Overcoming obstacles with Optimism

On February 28, 2017, I watched all 8,313 pounds of our household belongings be loaded into seven crates.  This is an odd perspective, seeing everything we own (clothes, furniture, etc.) covered with a thick tarp being driven away.

Sixty-three days later, on May 2nd, these belongings -now noted as 3,770 kilograms-  were delivered to our new house on the eastern coast of Sicily.

Gaining Weight

 

  • 8,313 pounds
  • 242 boxes
  • all fit into 7 crates

…That folks, that is just stuff.

 

  • 2 beautiful children
  • 1 intact family searching for adventure in this world

….These friends, these are gifts we’ve been given by life. It is our responsibility to remember to remain grateful and embrace the gifts life provides us.

 

We’ve started on a new adventure life offered our family this spring. There are still many challenges in my life, but I maintain an unwavering optimism to overcome these obstacles.

 

Stay tuned for my series of See Sicily With Me.
