Back in New England

It's hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that next year, I will have lived in the South as long as I lived in the North.

I lived in the same house from the time I was born until I left for college. My mother still lives there.

I am really grateful for where I am, yet when I am here I am reminded of how much New England still lies within me.

I no longer own a proper coat, or gloves. I certainly don't own a pair of real winter boots... Generally speaking, I don't need them.

But I notice a comfort with the evergreens and the rocky shores. The skies are different here, and the breeze knows my name.

Still, the South has become my home, with it's milder winters and central air conditioning.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have experienced both.... and an ability to be where I love...

Thank You, God!
