Closure

Some of you know that I've been dealing with estate hell and an unstable party (and that's being crazy kind, trust me) for four years now. And some of you know the toll it has taken on me over the years. It hasn't been easy, let me tell you...

Well, it's over.

On Wednesday things were finally settled and one chapter of my life came to a quiet close. And after the fact my brother and I, along with the executor and all of our lawyers, went out and partied it up at Aidan's, my favorite Irish pub here in Rhode Island.

DAMN BLOODY STRAIGHT!

I can't begin to tell you how much I've learned about myself over the course of these four years since my father passed away. What I can tell you right now is that I have come to appreciate the small things in life and have learned to have more patience than I ever thought was possible. I know my father would be proud. Everything I've done was in honor of what he wanted and what he stood for. I am my father's daughter...

Good things ahead! And there is a screenplay percolating in my brain about all of this. Oh yes...

Yoga and travel have been my therapy. One can find salvation in the stillness of a pose or the beauty of a sunset over the rooftops of Antigua. I know I have.

And thanks to those people in my life who have been there for me and stood by me whilst this madness unfolded. I bow to you for being my rocks, my lifelines and my ears to bend on the days the darkness seeped in. I value you far more valuable than the most precious of metals. You have been as important to me as air itself.

I feel big changes a comin', my fine and illustrious people. I can be anything now. Oh, you just wait and see...

Closure is a beautiful thing.

Big congrats Kathy. I am sure that I could share some things with you. What a relief to get on with life.

Ahhhh....

You must be breathing a sigh of relief.

Happy Easter!

Maria:

Courage and strength are always in us -- sometimes we just need to dig deep to find where it's hiding. You've done great, and it's your time now! Show it :-)

Kathy Bray:

Thanks you fabulous chicks! Yes, I am relieved but I'm also kind of numb. After four long years of drama it is an adjustment to have things be peaceful...

I think this calls for a trip back to Guatemala. I always find my center once I set my feet down on the cobbled streets of Antigua and the lake is calling my name. ;-)

Maria:

Hmm. Why did I somehow just *know* all this deserved a trip back? ;-)

Yep - very much enjoying the car. Bought it in November - didn't extract it from children until recently. :)

Kathy Bray:

Chiocciola, I've cheated on my Seven's, it's true! But these Joe's have some stretch to them and hold their shape! They might not be cheap, but once in a while it's nice to invest in one really nice classic pair of jeans. And as these are a dark wash I wear them out dressed up if I want to. Give them a look see and let me know what you think. Methinks you might just like them. ;-)
