In this limbo period we are staying with friends. Miss Angela (my friend) is our regular substitute in my classroom. She is someone I look up to. She is kind and funny and an all-around good person. It is easy to be her guest. It is just hard to be a guest in general. Hard to not disturb the routines of the hosts. Hard to have a feeling of solidarity within our own little family while things are not quite stable in a temporal way.
But each night we read scriptures together and remind ourselves of the important things, like being with each other and sharing experiences we have had during the day. Those are the building blocks of a home. The physical matters, of course, but the spiritual and the emotional are the real things.
I can't wait to get in there and renovate starting this weekend
