Better DaysI think they might be on their way finally, better days.
The sibling issue seems to be clearing up following Mercury's movement to direct travel. We've been having better, friendlier, more productive chats. We also came to an agreement. Then we contacted the lawyer last week, thinking it would take him a couple of hours to finalize so I could mail out the checks.
But we were delayed. First, the lawyer didn't follow through. I called Weds, he said give him until Thurs and he'd call. Called Thurs—still hadn't run the figures, will call by day's end. Didn't call. Called him Friday—in a meeting—will call back.
Shared this with sister. She called Monday.
He's out of the office until the end of the week.
But, she kindly and compassionately approved a small advance for me so with any luck, my internet access will be intact for another month. YAY
But it might be for the best. Had he been in the office or been on top of things, the checks would likely be mailed out already. The delay has allowed for things to shift in our favor. I think.
For one, I finally stopped stressing over the distribution method and accepted it. I stopped thinking about it completely. Today, my brain rewarded me for that by offering up a solution none of us had even considered which makes so much sense and satisfies everyone's concerns that I'm surprised we didn't see it. I spent the afternoon plugging in figures into Excel in preparation for discussion with the lawyer—although I have this strange feeling he's ahead of me. I plugged in my sister's suggestion, a second very logical possibility, and the method that revealed itself today. I would not be one bit surprised if the lawyer suggested Option 3 before I even have the chance to bring it up.
The second bit is, I don't want to jinx it so I won't say the details, but we received some very promising news regarding the properties that need to sell. Just keep your fingers crossed and think "SOLD" all week for us, willya?
So I get it. You'd think by now I'd have learned to TRUST God when He delays things. He's not trying to hurt us, even though it might seem that way. Although... that totally personifies God, doesn't it? Thinking that God calculates and rationalizes in regard to us humans.
I believe that there are two energy forces at work—one is 100% positive (God) and one is 100% negative (what we call the devil). I think we can tap into both and be susceptible to both. I don't think of them as "human" or as entities that reason with logic like our brains do—I see them as energy forces, as consciousness. They respond to the energy we put out, and since like attracts like (energy-wise), if we're positive, we get back positive and vice versa.
Anyway, I should trust the delays as well as the nudges. As Grandma always said, if you're late getting out the driveway, there's usually a good reason—someone's trying to protect you. (I had a friend tell me they had an experience like that recently, and the detour they decided to take kept them out of a major accident they would have been in had they been on time and gone the way they were originally going to go.)
So good news all around. Which is great, since Sunday is my birthday, and I can't think of any better present than to be "wealthy" again, have some property sold, and be on good terms with my family. I'll keep you posted! Have a great week.
Oh, and I'm totally jamming to Stevie tomorrow night. My friends bought me a ticket! I love my friends.
