Out past the tree line, there is a mountain I can see most days. There are lots of trees and nature is evident all around us. It almost feels like we are out in the country, away from noise and developments and crowding.
But in reality, a main road is on the other side of the house, we can hear traffic. We are down the street from several housing developments, and we hear dogs barking day and night. Our closest neighbor is pretty close actually.
We are within walking distance to Main St, a small village street with restaurants and shops and even a local mechanic's garage.
Though we still have plans for our dream house, our perfect place, the means to do only what we love, this is good enough for now. For this is all we can do right now. We can only dream of a better location, a better house, a better life. A strange place to be at this time in our lives, when most people our age are settled into their dream lives, but nonetheless, we are here.
I could be in a kitchen that had no view, that was smaller, that wasn't in this beautiful area. I could have no one to help me through these tough times. I could be hungry with no way out of the situation. Things could be worse, much worse. We have been through much worse.
I know we will find a way, sort it out. There are opportunities, we have experience and knowledge to get us through this. We have done it before, we will do it again.
In the meantime, I will enjoy my views.
