Next week marks a year since my husband and I first traveled to our new home state. It is with relief that we mark a year gone by. There have been several difficult situations, but as we begin to look on them with a bit of distance the pain has started to lessen. The landscape that shocked us, has become one we can enjoy and appreciate. We ourselves have changed with each season. Seasons. They pass whether we stop to look at the changes or not. The careful observance of the passage of time though. is a testament to a life well lived.
