Memories




Ever thankful that I was allowed to return home
A dream that became a reality
Seems like yesterday
Up and down road daily
from city to country
building, decisions, gardens begin
it came true

City home finally sold
I am home

Thank you...

Today

I am planting
a pear tree.....

I'm just shaking my head at you and your homecoming -- in companionable wonder, of course -- since I know exactly what you mean when you call your homecoming a miracle; I felt the same way about my own, five years ago now, which seems more like the proverbial yesterday.

That opening proverb speaks truth to make us pause. Here's another one, by Henry David Thoreau, that fits well beside it...

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?”

E,
Love your "cottage" in the woods, you are a very lucky lady:)
Love today's sharing.

Blessings to you.

planting a pear tree? so glad you are able to do this and the weather is permitting. we are a bit nippy here in the mid 30s with snow flurries expected - no accumulation, just showers here and there. far too cool in the windy chill to plant though. we are soooooo ready to get back into the gardens....hope you have fun.

A beautiful post. Congratulations on selling the city house and I feel privileged to have been a "part" of the journey.
You are so deserving of that peaceful lovely place. The turkeys are a riot. We have so many here, too.

Homecoming...you are nestled at woodlands edge. Your cottage/home is wonderful! The deer and turkeys, oh my, gorgeous photos! Your country area is spectacular.

I am so happy for you!
