A young girl commands the farm boy on her land to go chop wood for the fire.
Faithfully, he replies, "As you wish."
After numerous bold requests, one day with great admiration she sheepishly whispers, "farm boy, fetch me that pitcher."
He turns straight to her and says with his eyes,
"As you wish."
This Valentines Day, it makes 31 magical years that I locked eyes with the man that would always listen to my ideas, tell me if they were impossible, but with his actions always said,
AS YOU WISH.
We made our nest 14 years ago in an ordinary brick house where the vision for a serene homestead slowly became a reality.
And after months of shoving furniture into cramped quarters
and watching the construction workers brave the stillness of winter's bite
the portal into a new beginning
We have a long way to go until this
But the texture of worn beauty on the walls of a house
is hewn by days and nights filled with celebration
and by coloring in your surroundings
with the stamina to see the mélange
slowly form into one peaceful place of repose.
Happy Valentine's Day Ruben
and a splendid MONTH of celebration to all of my dear readers and friends!
I hope to be back with more pictures of our new living space as things take shape, but in the mean time, don't forget that
