I have this recurring dream, well it's a nightmare really. It starts out innocently enough with Mr. Tide and I shopping for a big new house.
The house has plenty of rooms with high ceilings, a large well appointed kitchen, and lots and lots of storage. The high ceilings and storage are both things we desperately lack in our current house, so my "dream" house seems like the perfect place to move.
Sometimes my dream house is also located on the water, just like this house, and sometimes it's even better waterfront, with a big huge pier and a luxurious boat at the end of it.
But each and every time in my dream when we have bought the other house, and we're moving out of this one, I feel an overwhelming sense of sadness...shear despair actually! I break down in tears at the thought of leaving this little house behind. The dream always ends the same way, with me crying and regretting our decision to move.
So I guess with all of its quirkiness, lack of storage, 8 foot ceilings, and other shortcomings, I really, truly do love this place. And when we have a sunset like the one pictured above (these photos are all straight out of the camera), well I think it's easy to see why leaving this place would break my heart!
In other news...I am WAY far behind on returning emails, or replying to comments, but I will get there...maybe, hopefully!
And the song below, which was written in 1943 during WWII, is probably not unlike my dream, only much, much worse. Not knowing if you would ever come home and be with your family again at Christmas must have been a nightmare I can't even begin to imagine! I hope that during the hustle and bustle of this crazy season, you will slow down and really enjoy those around you, and not focus on the things you and everyone else wants, but be thankful for everything you have!
