I’ve been settling into our new home. It’s the smallest place we ever lived and the most expensive. I’m very grateful for a place to live. It’s close to the church. It doesn’t take very long to clean because it’s small. We have storage for the excess stuff downstairs in the basement. Many places we looked at didn’t have storage.
We didn’t notice that the apartment didn’t have a dishwasher or a microwave when we looked at it back in April. Easy enough fix – we bought a microwave. When we were first married, we didn’t have a microwave. What on earth did I do without microwaves back then?
I am very happy to be here in New York. I love the people at our church. I’m having fun getting to know everyone and they have been such a blessing to us. I love that we are near family again. I love the foods of New York.
But you don’t realize what you’re missing until you don’t have it. Why is that?
It’s a little thing, but I miss you dishwasher. One day, when we have a house again, I look forward to having you back in my life. I promise not to take you for granted again.
