for my grandmother. It was a long trip from Europe
but it was worth it to be here for her.
The other day on an outing I bumped into an old friend.
It was so neat to see someone I knew from the past.
My friend remembered my love of Ireland
(gosh, have I been talking about it that long?)
and one of the first questions out of her mouth
was "did you ever buy a house in Ireland and are you
going to one day?" sadly my answer was no but I
still dream of it. From the expression on her face,
I know I must of lit up like a candle as I always do
whenever I speak of Ireland and my Irish friends.
I told her of my favorite town, my friends there, and the
area that I dream of for my Irish Cottage Dream. She
also asked what I will do once I am there.... well maybe
I will sell some of my favorite products in a little shop or
I will fall back on a few talents... I am very resourceful :)
Getting the cottage is the starting point for a new adventure!
It was nice to see an old friend and for a moment I
forgot the stress that I am currently under with my
grandmother's situation. And after I left, I went out
and bought a lottery ticket. (I don't normally do this..
I believe in hard work and kindness to others)
But I thought "what the heck!" I could sure use a
miracle now! I know If I won enough money to buy
a cottage I would just be beside myself with joy.
But I do know how unrealistic that is and I will just
continue to work hard and save. It has been a very,
very long road....I am not giving up.
Latest favorite cottage.... Here you go!
I know it is a new one...unlike the fixer-uppers
I usually list, but it is a beauty and I could sure
see myself happily in the kitchen cleaning the
vegetables from the lovely garden on the property.
So what do you think of this one?
