As our lives change and time goes on, we often have questions that we ask ourselves. "Will I be happy?". "Will I know anyone?". No matter how goode the changes are...there are always questions and perhaps we never voice some, thinking they may be insignificant or silly. As life changed for me a couple years ago with the passing of my Father, there were difficult decisions that my daughters and I had to make. I was moving an hour and a half South of our home. I wanted the choice of where they lived to be theirs...they are young ladies with good heads on their shoulders. As a child of a Military family, I did not have such choices. As a child moving was full of fun and adventure, but as a teen; I wished for roots and long friendships. Understandably, my daughters wanted to live with their other Grandparents and continue their schooling where they had roots and friends. As a Mom, it was difficult to let go.
As I left the area that I had yearned for when we traveled, and later settled and raised my daughters; I had many questions. Home is truly where your loved one is and I love my new home...but I knew I would miss the mountains and the wee critters that lived around me. Moving to the Suburbs,would I have the wildlife that I loved so much? Today...I have my answer.
