Moving on With a Wonderful Life


Next To The Last Day Of June

The weather looks good

Life is promising

Changes are happening

A whole new beginning

Friends are supportive and by your side

I hear those beautiful words one more time

Florida here I come

We all live in so many different places around the world

I believe wherever our heart is

We call it home

Some people live their whole lives in one place and never move

Other people move every few years

Then there are some people

That move once or twice in their life

I am that type of person

One move is enough for me

All the packing and unpacking

Finding a new job

Making new friends

Through it all

We get the life we so desire

We accept change as a way of life

Our happiness is the most important

So to Gypsy Rose Lee and her adorable cat Sid

Wishing you a safe trip

Fantastic is one way to describe your journey

When you get settled and have a little free time

I am sure all your hubbers want to know

How is it going ?

What is your new place like ?

Where are you working now ?

So here is to wonderful new memories and exciting great times

Here a few fun facts about Florida

Florida's state motto is In God We Trust

Florida's state bird is northern Mocking bird

Florida is known for their oranges and grapefruit

Eighty percent of Americas citrus is grown there

In time you will have to tell us so much more

Gypsy Rose Lee Every year I have to work for the fourth of July. This year it fell on my day off. Every spot was taken. So my wife and I double parked in the entrance of a parking lot and watched them. They were very good. Everyone outside was getting bitten by bugs. We were very happy. When was the last time you seen fireworks ? Where was it and when ? Were you able to take any pictures? I hope you had a lot of fun. Most people love to celebrate and have a good time. I find small things each day to enjoy and keep the festivities going all year long. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a great day.

Much too crowded to go see the fireworks here but they could be seen from the house.

Gypsy Rose Lee Happy Fourth Of July. The weather hit 100 degrees here and for the next few days it will be in the high nineties. Works been crazy busy and towards the end of the week I have a mini vacation. It is so nice to be able to relax and not going anywhere until we have too. Florida has so many things to see and do. People travel from all over the world to visit and you are able to call it home. Thank you for telling me all about each step of the way. My routine is pretty much the same. Wake up and do a few things around the house and then off to work. I play catch up on my days off and do the things I normally don't have time for and squeeze in some lovely rest. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Florida is a little too hot for me. I like a little cooler weather and try not too get to much sun. I do love hearing all about Florida and many other places. You must sleep good in a beautiful bed after such a long trip. How many hours did it take you and was it what you expected? All day I have been hearing small fireworks going off and then at night my wife and I got to see a local demonstration of professional fireworks. The sounds and bright lights of so many different designs and colors. We had a great day. Did you get to go to see any fireworks yourself ? Thank you for reading and having fun.

Thanks for the fun facts of the sunshine state. I am here in Florida but have seen no citrus trees. I do see palm trees all over the place.

Dora Weithers There are so many beautiful places to live that offer many unique opportunities as well incredible sites and wonderful people. I can see why people make it there home. When exploring and enjoying go hand in hand. Thank you so much for your comment and your lovely visit. May your dreams grow bigger and better every day.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on July 02, 2018:

You maintain a great positive attitude throughout. Thanks for sharing: "Through it all / We get the life we so desire / We accept change as a way of life." Good to realize this whether we're moving or settling.

Audrey Hunt I have been to Orlando, St. Petersburg and Palm Harbor. All were fun places to visit. I hope you have a very nice summer. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

I spend every summer in Florida for a few weeks and love it. Have you heard of Appalachia? Your poem is wonderful! Thank you.
