The First Time

 

“When was the last time you did something for the first time?”  This is a line in the song “For the First Time” sung by Darius Rucker.  I’m experiencing a lot of “firsts” right now.  Being in my new home is such a Blessing!  It has made me take note of all of those little firsts.  The first time I cooked a meal in my kitchen.  The first time I sat on my deck and listened to the rain.  The first time I looked out my kitchen window and watched the squirrels run and frolic on the lawn.  The first time Rocket ran across the yard, chasing a squirrel, to defend me and His yard!

Being from a small rural town in Oregon and moving to the mega metroplex of the DFW area has been a Huge transition for me.  Now that I have my own little slice of “nature” and a relatively quiet neighborhood, I’m in heaven!!

Because of all of the work that I’ve been doing since I moved, my feet and legs are killing me.  This gives me the perfect excuse to sit and post something here while I rest up.

Although it’s been hard work, BLESSED is how I am feeling about my life.  I want to pinch myself!  I came from Very Humble Beginnings.  So to have my own home is almost unbelievable for me!  Happy, happy girl here!

Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Penny  ❤
