Weekly Photo Challenge – Happy Place: “show us where you go to get your groove back.”
I got my groove back when I moved to Florida. I’m close to my kids, and that’s the happiest of all happy places. It took three years to get to the point where I could do this, and every minute of those three years was worth it to have the strength to be here now.
But everything about my new neighborhood is my happy place. It’s the wide sidewalks and pedestrian friendly design.
It’s the multitude of lakes and wildlife.
It’s my front porch.
I sit there in the morning and watch the sun light the world around me. I sit there in the afternoon and watch the neighborhood move about their daily lives. I sit there in the evening and watch the sun set in a glow that cannot be described in words.
I sit there and try to take in the enormous change I’ve made in my life. I sit there and I am happy.
