reflections and excitement
It doesn’t seem right, sitting by our pool today, in the 30 degree sunshine, gazing over the gardens at the chair in which Jane sat for a week – and it being empty…. I can ‘feel’ her presence, here ‘the foursome’ laughing – and am even tempted by the pool (but not that much!) coz that’s what they be doing if they were here! We had such a great week with them: we made some memories and reminisced about others………..the house is now filled with the spirit of their laughter, chat and life force and ‘feels lovely’.
I love friends and family coming to our home – they add magic, memories and ‘life’ to the house. I can sense them in the rooms and know they’ve had fun and left a touch of their joy with us. Bliss!
Course, I’m so sad, I also feel the same way about our lovely villas in Peyia and Coral Bay: when I walk into Lily May, I can ‘sense’ the many happy customers who’ve made this great house their home in the sunshine for one or two weeks….I find checking out guests, very emotional: that they’ve had a great time, is wonderful; that they don’t want to leave and are not looking forward to ‘real life’, makes me want to cry – and a ‘rep’ isn’t supposed to cry so I’m tough/smile and go home very melancholy, doing it all at the next checkout!
Actually, this is ‘real life’ – for us coz we live here but for the visitors too: its a precious, window of relaxation to just drink in the sun/welcome/villa/moments – oh, and a little wine to help the economy too!
‘Thoughts are living things’…. No wonder our home and villas/apartments feel so happy – they are full of happy thoughts from the many , many visitors who’ve lived in their walls….. Long may this continue………… (but for those who know and love us, we’re having a week off from visitors so DONT book a flight without asking us -LOL!)
As if…………the door is always open as well you all know ! xxx
