  1. Oh my, this takes me back! I, too, moved from the city to the country when I didn’t want to. And, like you, made wonderful memories after that. I feel more nostalgia thinking of the country home than the city one. My mom growling at me for trying to train my 4H calf on the front lawn, running across the road to gorge myself on cherries on the trees. You can’t buy memories like that. Thank you for allowing me to remember fondly a time I didn’t think I’d have fond memories of at all. God bless!

  2. What a great list of celebrations! Many of those memories I share as well…thanks for the great reminder to celebrate change. With Joy, Carey

  3. Wonderful story!

    It’s fun to live out in the country where it’s quiet and peaceful! I absolutely love it!
