Trying to wrap my mind around it
I’m very exited about our move in the next several months to Missouri. I am very thankful we found the house we did – it met every one of my criteria…the lake…okay pond…could be a little bigger but I am totally content. CONTENT. I’m even content when I pull up a road map of the area …. that is content. I’ve never been content about where I am planted. That discussion is for a whole different Oprah Show. But keeping this in mind, driving home the other day from work, I was appreciating the corn and beans in the field and the though crossed my mind that I”m going to miss this…
I was actually disappointed that the farmer across the road planted beans instead of corn this year because my last year (after almost 30 years), I will not get to watch the corn blowing in the wind. Driving down a gravel road in August with corn towering above you on both sides of the road always reminded me of driving to Uncle Bob’s house from Grandma’s house in the summer…especially at night driving down the white gravel road in Muscatine county with only the headlights – leaving a trail of dust from where we had been.
I’m going to miss the view every time
Trees, trees, trees and then it opens up to our house
He was working in the yard yesterday, it was a beautiful summer day…it felt cool when I opened the door to step out..I felt a fleeting feeling of sadness that we are moving away from this. It is not lost on me how blessed I am. I am feeling happy, happy, happy to be making the move but also feeling a bit teary eyed about leaving the place I’ve spent 30 years.
Until next time….
