The Lord keeps putting things in my life down here that are making life here sweeter while I wait. We have a bike path being laid that goes to a farm market!! There will be a coffee shop on that path, too. It is being built now. I have countless blessings here. Silly little things like Costco opening a few miles away or a fabulous water park ten minutes away cause me to think this move could be harder than I think! I may have to drive down once in awhile to get my favorite taco sauce that I just discovered.
Really, I am getting spoiled down here. My garden boxes overflow so to speak. I must not allow my desires to live back north steal my joy of living right now. That is a must.
What I can do is work on the house. Little projects done over the next 9 months could make a quicker sale. I am going to work on a list. We can't spend a lot of money, but sometimes elbow grease and a bit of paint can go a long way. And it is time to PURGE!!! How I love a good purge.
Truthfully, I am very excited to return "home" next year. In the meantime, I am going to be happy here. No grumbling because I have to drive, drive, drive all the time, time, time. :) All this to say, I have changed the name of this blog to contentment. And a contented heart is a thankful heart!
