If it seems too good to be true. . .

I keep thinking of the old saying, “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

We’ve been enjoying a staycation during the winter holidays. We’ve come to some decisions about how to handle our repatriation to America after we leave this country. We all seem to feel so good about the plans, how to make them happen, the much better academic opportunities for the kids, the greater job market for both MC and for me, the much cheaper cost of living than our home city could provide, and still be only a two hour drive from family back home. We are all looking to the future together. We are all excited by the possibilities. Our day-to-day  life in the present is based on being together, working together, re-growing our friendship and what feels like a husband and father focused on love, care, concern, and protection of our family. This is everything I ever wanted. And, yet, I cannot help but have that incessant nagging thought, “if it seems too good to be true. . .”

  1. Hi TL,
    Sounds wonderful. Making plans helps you to look at the future and obviously the future plan is to remain together and to make it work for all of you. Enjoy all of it.
    Take care and have fun with your family!

  2. Once bitten, twice shy, I suppose. Things sound great. Enjoy it. People can change, and sounds as if he has refocused and come to the realization that he nearly lost everything he held dear. It’s a wake-up call, I’m sure. I hope 2017 is the best one yet for you guys. Happy New Year. 😊

    1. E and SObeach, sorry to not be so responsive. When an occasional thought, feeling, concern or triumph occurs to me I’ll write it out here. Otherwise, Mindless is taking the lead, as I try to back away and give my soul a break from it all. I hope you had a beautiful New Years and many peaceful, productive days ahead. TL 😘
