I was fast forwarding a lot, thinking about when David and I are old, and our kids will take their babies to Michigan to see the house that grandma and grandpa got married in. What will the house look like? Will the two tall trees we got married under still be there? When we bought this property, there was a very old and run down home that we tore down to build this new home. An elderly woman was living here all by herself. It made me feel sad to tear down a home that housed a lifetime of memories. That will happen to this home one day too.
For now I will live in the here and now and soak up the gifts I'm given with each passing moment. The sound of my baby's breath. The way my husband looks at us. The smell of my puppy dog. The green surrounding this home.
