Home, Sweet Home

Well, after doing some looking around online and searching thru the papers, I finally found what I want in a home. It was actually staring me in the face, so to speak. I had been seeing a "for rent" sign posted on a wall next to a wonderfully large house here in town. It wasn't advertised in the papers, nor mentioned on the web, and had been that way for months. I finally got the number and arranged to check it out. Well, it's actually a two story garage apartment behind the wonderfully large house. Two bedrooms, one bath, washer/dryer included, dishwasher, loads of cabinet and closet space. Even a faux fireplace! Five-seventy five a month! It's just what I'm looking for and I think this is going to be Casa De Sammy for a long time. I'm looking at my finances and it looks like I can pull it off. So, in the next few days, I'm really on my own. I've never really lived by myself, ever and now I'm doing it.

I don't talk religion much, but I guess by now I should with my life changing so fast. I don't go to church anymore, but I do have the belief that there is a higher being up there that looks over us. And, that sometimes things happen for a reason, either good or bad. I know I wouldn't have these problems now if there wasn't a reason, and I wouldn't be going thru the changes in my life if there wasn't a reason. But, I know that there must be a plan for me, somehow. I just have to remember what my mom taught me before she died. Keep the faith and everything will be ok. That patience is a virtue, and that everything will be ok in the end. Well Ma, I'm doin' what you told me and thanks to you and the Big Guy, I think from this day forward, I'm gonna be okay. I just wish you were here to see me finally smile again, Mom.
