We have spent that last few days shopping for foundations… like in a place to sit and plate from which to eat… and… it takes longer than you might think to find all your foundations. I imagined that we would have more accomplished by now, but anyway, we ARE ENJOYING the process. It is not everyday that one gets to buy new furniture and move to Jerusalem.
Imagine eight suitcases crammed with life as we know it and scattered all over the floor with no closets or drawers…
Anyway, all this disarray reminded me this morning of just how important foundations are in life. Those sideboards around us that keep us going just can’t be taken for granted. And when they are missing, we really feel it.
Oh the sweetness of order and things in their right places… but you need the places first!
Right now we are sitting at an Internet cafe. It is chilly… I love that. Because Jerusalem is high in elevation, it cools down at night. Honestly, the wind is down right cold now. After suffering in the Texas heat, this feels so good.
I am drinking a hot chocolate… it is that cold… sitting with my husband enjoying the lovely night, watching Israelis stroll on the streets after the Shabbat. And I am thinking life just doesn’t get better than this–disarray and all!
Tomorrow we are off to IKEA to purchase most of our foundations…
