makes me both happy and sad. Happy because it is the site of many, many happy memories. It is a picture of my grandparents’ house with a view from the driveway. A place I have visited at least 2x a year since I was born. A place that has changed only in scenary and landscape and is so familiar I could navigate it in my sleep. The decor is the same, the smells–the same, the noises—the same. After having moved four times in my life, I appreciate even more their house being the constant. It is and has been the gathering place for many family reunions.
Sad because it won’t always be a part of my or MG’s future.
But I don’t want to think about that right now. Deep down that thought is there, but it is suppressed by all of the good times of the past and the immediate times we look forward to in the near future.
Where is your happy constant?
