Fresh start, award, new home..LIFE IS GOOD!!

Thankyou Breeze at for this award!! I comment because I find your poems to be breathtaking...and when I visit your site I always leave thinking and pondering and inspired!! Thankyou for the award, made my day!!!:)

So, after days of not blogging I am back ..
I was gone..because..I finally...
A FRESH start!!
A NEW (to us) home....
NEW paint
NEW carpets..
NEW bedding...
NEW Bird feeders in the back yard....
NEW towels in the bathroom..
NEW potholders in the kitchen..
and it all combines
for a NEW out look!!
A place of literally getting to say good bye to the past!
Today I handed over the keys..
to a home...
I built!
I picked the counters
and cabinets
and light fixtures.....
I painted with friends,
the kids rooms...
and the attic held my love letters
and baby shoes..
a home that was my childrens
for 6 years...
I handed over the key..
thinking I might also be handing over my heart,
BUT NO....
it did not hurt!
I am past that place,
I have grieved this..
and at some point I moved on!
So, as I looked back one last time..
I looked back fondly at the pink kitchen counter...
and smiled in memory at the painted green living room..
and walked away lighter...
to the home that is now ours!
the home that holds memories to come...
and most importantly,
the home that holds my children!
Life is good!
