9.5



This week's been huge so far. Met with the accountant and he worked out what my little company needs to do to buy my business partner out. All I can say is GULP!!!! But God is bigger and I trust the accountant and my husband. It's good long term for us even if it's hard right now.


I also worked a couple of days helping a friend who owns a construction company. They are super busy and I was designer/ admin girl. If you work in administration you have my greatest respect! It's hard work, no two ways about it!


But in the busyness and emotional stress I had a little gem of a revelation....


I am an immigrant and moved to New Zealand when I married a New Zealander. I was alone for about 7 or 8 years until my parents and youngest sister moved here. In those years I ached for my family and the separation was hard. We all knew that to be with one another we would have to do a minimum of 23 hours air time alone. We were thousands and thousands of kilometers apart.


I count the kms for work trips and so this week clicked the meter to zero and set off for my mothers house. She was going to babysit my little man for me while I worked. I looked at the odometer when I arrived at her house and tears came to my eyes.


She lives only 9.5km away from me. 9.5km. That's it. If we need one another and want to be with one another, we can get in the car and be there within 15 minutes. 15 minutes!!!! Slightly better than a good 36 hours of travel!


I am soooo grateful. God reunited all of us. Both my sisters live near me as do my parents. How wonderful is that? Instead of skyping and emailing and cramming time together when we can, we are able to be spontaneous. Get together "just because". I am so blessed!
