In every dream there are obstacles to face. Though sometimes in life, plans seem to fall in to place without a glitch, it is uncommon.
What I’m trying to say is that we have endured our first set back/disapointment. We did not succeed in our first introduction to the cut throat application system that is the New York real estate market…we did not secure the beautiful, perfectly located apartment pictured two posts back. It went to someone else.
These are waters which, in our naivity, we did not expect to tread. We thought we had it, that this apartment would come as easy as all the other pieces of this moving puzzle so far. We’d be moving in 3 weeks and to a dreamy new residence.
Well, we’re still moving in 3 weeks but the question now is where? Somehow, we must find another apartment. Our consolation, our hope in all this, is that we’ve given our plans to God and He knows what He’s doing. He cares about every facet of this move down to where we live and obviously, what seemed like the perfect apartment in the scope of our limited human understanding, was not. Plain and simple.
So, the hunt must go on…
