As the moving date gets closer I’m starting to notice the things that I truly will miss about living here among the threes. One thing is the people I will miss – but thankfully many of those I’ll keep contact with through my work (that remains the same as it as been). We’ll also try to keep in contact with MT’s close friends and their families.
Now, there are other things to this place that we don’t have at the farm: THE RIVER!
The river is just a few steps down from our house and I LOVE WALKING by it in the evening with our dog, walking in the forest behind our farm is nice, but it’s not the same, it’s something else entirely.
I’ll miss the sound of the running water.
I’ll miss the damp smell in the air as I get closer to it.
I’ll miss the mist and fog that surrounds it so often at night.
I’ll miss noticing if there are little, normal or a lot of water in the river.
I’ll miss the many colors of blue.
I’ll miss walking by it every day.
I’ll miss this as a place to find peace and stillness when I needed it most.
We are moving to a place that is dear to us – but there are always something that we leave behind that we would like to bring with us. For MT it is his friends (off course), for me it is the river. This also fills me with GRATITUDE – we had it there for a while and it meant a whole lot to us. The future will hold new great things that will mean the world to us – and sweet old memories that made us who we are.
