places and sights makes me seriously happy.
I'm always looking for an opportunity
to do a weekend get away.
If I haven't been on a road trip in a few months
I get antsy. Being able to pack up and just leave at a moment's notice is another reason why I love home schooling
And yet I loathe moving...with a passion
In the last 15 years, we've moved no less than 5 times. That's an average of a move
every 3 years. Not all that surprising for a military family. It comes with the job...but
I'm sick to death of it. I thought once hubby was out of active duty we'd actually find a place of our own and put down some roots. Well hubby's been out for the last few years and we're still moving.
In fact we've been in the house we're renting now for 3 years.
Guess what's due to happen at the end of the year?
I knew immediately what my spirit would say.
My spirit wishes for a house.
Not just any house my own home.
My spirit longs for a place of my own where my body can live and my heart
can dream. A base of operations to come back to after visiting other places.
For walls I can paint any color I want and rooms I can make any improvement
on without worrying about trying to get a deposit back. I long to get to know
neighbors and maybe invite some of them over for parties and have kids my son's
age come over to play in my backyard.
And a backyard! I long for a nice sized backyard to be able to really garden and have a playground set for my kiddo. Oh! I'd love to have a really old tree in my backyard for a tire swing!
Some place not to big. Where we all get that feeling of sanctuary and connection. We haven't found it yet, but I'm optimistically hopeful our home will make it self known really soon.
