When thinking about what to name this blog, a few ideas came to mind: Trump Sucks (already taken), David and Jenny (boring), We Love our Dogs (true, but not illustrative of this blog's content). So how did we come up with For the Time Being?
"for the time being" definition:
phrase of time
for the present; until some other arrangement is made.
synonyms:for now, for the moment, for the present, in the interim, for the nonce, in/for the meantime,
And that's just what we're trying to do- live in the time being. Now, more than ever, we have to practice patience and flexibility- two characteristics that are not my strengths. We don't know what tomorrow will look like: Will the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor foster care program be paused indefinitely? Will our child come to our home next month? Or in six months? What language will he or she speak? Will he or she love our dogs as much as we do?
While all of these questions race through my mind, I try to remind myself to pause, breathe, and remember to be in the present. For the time being, it's just the two of us (well, four if you count our dogs) and we are so hopeful that our family will grow very soon.
