“It takes time to get settled and get everything into its place.”

Maga was referencing my recent move (into home ownership), but I couldn’t help but think of the 62 years she spent settling into her house. There were the magazines (all the magazines so very many magazines) and the china, games, books, pictures, letters, bills, wine, and slot machine, but also, there were the family dinners, holiday traditions, bridge nights, neighborhood meetings, financial discussions, tears shed, laughter echoing, lessons learned.

I’ve done the physical unpacking here. Next up, the decorating and organization and finding a place for everything and finding myself amidst the new responsibilities and all other things involved with settling into a home.

Fortunately, I’ve got some excellent role models in how to do all of that.
