Once again, an outcome that seemed to profoundly disappointing, was just a stepping stone to one that was better than we could have imagined. For months hubby and I fixated on what we felt was the perfect country home for us. We decorated it, developed the property and spent countless hours discussing the possibilities of this "perfect" home. But it was not to be.

When it sold to someone - not us - my experience reminded me to trust that this outcome was the best one for us - that something better was in store. My heart was right.

Hubby and I will soon be the proud owners of a historic stone schoolhouse with four lush acres on a quiet country road, minutes to the quaint village we love. A magical property more than 100 thousand dollars less than we bid on the other house.

Sometimes the universe has something better in store than we allow ourselves to dream. So dream big. And be grateful. And tonight I was reminded - and filled with gratitude. I predict a very good night's sleep.


  1. SO happy for both of you. Dreams do come true, you just have to BELIEVE! Exciting times ahead...
    Love you,

  2. Lyn...The pictures do not express the total beauty of that property. I realize that this will be your reality and not a dream and with reality will come numerous adventures that come from living in the country. I am sure that you will be up to the task and will plan strategically to meet all challenges. Love Polar Bear
