“Life has a funny way of catching up to you. It usually occurs when you least expect it.” I don’t think these thoughts are original to me, but I’m too lazy to figure out who really said them.
A year ago, we completed paperwork for a federal grant to solve a long-standing problem with our property. Yesterday, we received an unexpected call from the county office responsible for submitting the request, telling us the grant had been approved. Now we have to get our act in together and figure out what to do next.
Of all the problems we face, all the stresses in a normal life, this is just one more. I know this sounds kind of foolish since we initiated the request, but change is always stressful. Hopefully this change will bring peace and stability at the end of the journey.
