I am reveling in the joy of living where I do. It seems surreal to live here. I asked my husband the other day when it would stop feeling like I'm on permanent vacation. He doesn't feel that way because he's working really hard; but I do. I been doing touristy things such as going to local berry farms suggested in Sunset magazine, enjoying Washington State parks, and taking a ferry to a nearby island. The funny part is that I didn't partake in these things when I lived here before. Maybe it was because my kids were small, but really I think it's because I didn't appreciate it fully. It wasn't until I left that I regretted not doing more. I can tell that people who have lived here a long time don't know that they are lucky. I walked out of the grocery store this morning and saw the marina with sailboats across the street. It beat the Rite Aide with the weed-filled field behind it at my previous grocery store any day! I am a person who is easily bored, so enjoying where I live is important. I am going to commit to enjoy this place to the fullest! When I feel discontent creeping in, I will go look at the view from my front porch and thank the Lord for allowing me to return!
I hope you enjoy the view from your front porch too...wherever you are!
