you just have to reach out


Today we made an offer on River House. Technically we offered to purchase it in exchange for a specified amount of money, but it feels like we offered much more than mere money. We offered our hearts, and our hopes for the future. We offered our dreams.

Offerings are traditional in many cultures and religions. They are given to appease, bribe, or express gratitude to the God/dess. I'm not sure this is all that different.

and grab what you want,
even when they tell you not to."
