Putting it out there

I want to live way up north in the woods.
In a cozy home with a front porch and swing
with a real fireplace
Where my kids can run around outside all day
and explore the land
A place where there is enough land for my husband to ride four-wheelers and snow-mobiles
and hunt
I want my kids to know how to build a tree fort and to skip rocks
I want a real christmas tree every year
I want my kids to know God, to have moral values and character, and to appreciate life
I want a garden in the summer
with veggies and flowers
I want a home where playing games and singing songs is the norm
I want to relearn how to play the piano
I want a creative space where my kids and I can paint and make things all day long
It doesn't have too be big
or fancy
I don't even need to live close to a mall
that's what shopping on the internet is for
I want to live closer to our families
so my kids know their grandparents
I want more kids eventually
I want a big hill to ride sleds down in the winter
I want my husband to find a job that pays enough for us to do this
and a job that makes him happy
I know this may be a lot to want
but I do
and I am putting it out there in hopes that it will come true!
