Lately, I have been thinking about how our perspective changes as we go through different times in our life. For instance, my perspective on time has been turned upside down since we have lived here (aka paradise). I now think that 7:30 is sleeping in, when just over a year ago I couldn't even get up by 9:00. Another example I have thought of is how long I spend driving my car. I remember living in Tucson, putting $20 of gas in my car to last a week. That would never work here. I almost need $20 a day. That is the number ONE reason why I hate living where I do.....UNTIL.....

Yesterday. I went back to Tucson for the first time since I left , a little over a year ago. Driving into town I was blown away with how pretty it was. There were trees and bushes and finished sidewalks. IMAGINE!! The funny thing is while I lived there I really didn't think it was pretty. I just thought that Cactus are cool! Oh, how my perspective has changed. Now, I am longing to get back there. I guess I need to find the beauty in blowing sand.

I will definitely need some time to have my heart heal...I just ripped out a knife!

  1. It's just one of those "you don't know what you have until it's gone." moments. I am so glad you got to come up, even for a day. We do miss you guys. And even though the Segle's live on Dream Maker now, it will always be your place!
