Friends, I’m not an expert in listening, but I do have one year of change in my life, and some experience in really trying to hone in on this skill.

Life’s answers are not always right out in front of us …. I wish they were. Sometimes we have to make changes, or be willing to take risks to see them, or slow down, and learn to listen more.

My story today is about taking a chance one year ago, selling our house, and moving to a new town!

Fast forward one year later, finally, and it feels like we’ve emerged from winter. Paul and I were joking the other day, it was like we were picked up, placed in another mountain home, a new snowy climate, but now we are back … home!

We are home, back to the place we moved to one year ago, surrounded by dirt, trees, sage brush, and beautiful weather.

One year ago, I was in Italy when Paul texted me the link to our mountain home, and I quickly viewed the photos and knew right away there was so much potential, with all of the wood. Paint it white, open up the space to one large great room. The quaint wrap-around-deck, and I envisioned a white kitchen.

One year later, here we are! We love our home so much, and every day we count our blessings.

If someone asked me, through this big change in our lives, for one thing I’ve learned, I would say listening.

Listening to what’s around me. What God is telling me. What He’s telling me through my friends, other people, what I’m reading, hearing, and being quiet in nature.

I’ve been able to listen more, without so many distractions.

Honestly, it’s taught me a lot about myself.
