Me, My Faith, My Home

MY HOME:

I made a visit to Sitka in March and thanks be to God I found this house...This house was meant to be our home.  I laugh with Pete, who was not with me when I came up here in March, that when I opened the front door I almost backed right out, went to the car to call him and tell him that I had just found OUR NEW HOUSE!!  I did not really think I needed to see the rest...I was good with the hallway!!

I loved this house from just looking down the well lite hallway.  I just felt like it was home...and the funny thing is the actual owners were the ones showing me around.  I did not feel any hesitation...I knew !!

When we got in on the Ferry at 2:00 in the morning 2 weeks ago we drove right to our house.  As the house got closer I got more and more nervous..."What if Pete hated it?" That would have been a major bummer...cause' he kinda already paid for it.

But he, like me, fell in love at first glance. I have bought and lived in several homes since Pete and I began 17  years ago (we got married when I was 20...we just had our 17th wedding anniversary....umm...that is SO weird!!!) and I have never felt so at home so quickly.

As with any house there are a few things that are not EXACTLY the way I would have chosen...but I refuse to even mention or acknowledge they exist.  I am home.  I am happy. The End.

My Faith:

It is GREAT to be Catholic...

The End!!

Me:

I am cooking dinner. I am  knitting sweaters.  I am taking walks.  I am folding laundry.  I am me...just with a new address.

The End.

  4. I'm so glad you found the perfect place...

    It reminds me of the Shaker song Simple Gifts...

    'Tis the gift to be simple,
    'tis the gift to be free
    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

    ~Have a lovely day!

  6. Thanks Jenn...
    I got so lucky to find this place. There were like 5 houses for sale that were not 1 million $$...so we were thrilled. The kids are really happy here too. I am sure they feed off of us but living in this small town they have more freedom than they ever imagined. It is wonderful...granted they ave lived through an Alaskan winter yet...that they remember at least.
