Chapter Eight: Reflection Time
November 13th, 2017
Though I am sitting in a camper in the chill of fall, getting bundled up to work on electrical in a cold uninsulated construction zone of a house, unable to have running water for fear of pipes freezing in our (not so Four Season) camper, the nearest bathroom being either a tree in our woods or “Bill’s 1st Stop” 6 min away... I can't help but reflect on how grateful I am to be where I am right now. Nathanael and I have spent our entire morning talking to our family.. skyping my sister, Stephanie, who is currently backpacking Europe, talking to Nathanaels brother, Jeremiah, over the phone about his recent hunting war stories, catching up with our friend, Joel, about how school and his new baby girl, Aria, are doing - not many people can choose to do that on a Monday morning with no accountability to anyone but themselves. Just the opportunity to spend intimate time with each other and our family and friends is truly a priceless thing that I hope I never take for granted.
However, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel for the construction of our little home. Electrical should be all wrapped up this week, inspection next, and then insulation and drywall to quickly follow. And we’ll be move in ready! Praise the Lord, we’re almost there and just in time for winter!
