With a bit of zoom, this is the view from the deck of our new home.
How we got there, though we have yet to physically get there, is a long and painful story involving being forced out of the old family home, casting about for some firm footing, finally settling beside the San Lorenzo river in Ben Lomond.
Today, I can feel much of the emotional mess receding into acceptance and occasional moments of hopeful optimism. I am holding on to the promise of beauty in the new home that's felt prepared for us, hoping it will mitigate the pain of new distance from Sophia.
