You know the old saying that when the universe speaks you listen? That is exactly what happened to us during this turmultous move. When the house deal in Albuquerque fell through, we headed to Seal Beach, CA to my husband’s brother’s house to decide what to do next.
Interstate 40 is a long stretch of road that cuts deep into the New Mexico/Arizona desert. Along the way, I had a spiritual encounter. I felt the universe hold me close as if time was suspended and unmoving. Suddenly, I knew that we were meant to live as close to my brother and sister in law as possible. The message was loud and clear… move to the Phoenix area!
So, our journey from Colorado morphed and changed once again. We arrived in Seal Beach and shared our news. My hubsband’s brother and sister in law are getting on in years and we both felt like we needed to be near. They were thrilled to hear that we would be only a few hours away.
An internet search led me to a new housing area in Buckeye, AZ on the western fringes of Phoenix. The location was perfect and accessible to Luke AFB where I still receive my healthcare.
We instantly fell in love with the house and the area. This will be my third time living in Arizona. I’ve always loved the desert but not the heat. Yet, it didn’t bother me this time as it had before. Even better, the builder said they would do everything they could to help us close on the house by May 31st! Everything is on target to get us in our new house.
Isn’t it amazing when things suddenly fall into place?
I reflected back on that drive down Interstate 40 and how the synchronicity of our decision to move closer to family came about. I still find myself awed at how our unconscious mind can lead us to the right path. And, when you know you’re going in the right direction everything falls into place.
I hope to be back to blogging and writing in the next couple of weeks. Thanks to all of you for checking on me. Your friendship is greatly appreciated. I’ll see you all soon!
