We finally bought a house! 

In a course changing wind we were swept on a breeze to the little blue house neath the white almond trees. Deciding to settle the first time we looked, a country lifestyle had us totally hooked. We gave up our dreams through the decade we spent accepting a lifetime of still paying rent. A rare opportunity gave us a chance to save up some cash for the homeowners dance. Over the course of the next several years, memories were made full of laughter and tears. The little blue house had a comfortable way, no telling just how long we might want to stay. Then several years older we notice the time and realize we still have a mountain to climb. Awaken the dream of a place of our own and deepen the roots of the seeds we had sown. With prayers and high hopes we let our dreams fly and found ourselves sailing a bright Sonny sky. There were just a few bumps as we took a big chance but with all overcome we were ready to dance. In a course changing wind we were sept on a breeze from the little blue house neath the white almond trees, to a settling place we could now call our own, a place we will now and forever call home. Thank you, Sonny Nguyen. We are deeply grateful and blessed.

Thanks WW, I think our wings will rest here for a good long time, probably until it's time to fly to our home in the sky.

Congratulations on the new house. That realtor must have really had a story! I am happy for your happiness and The poem is beautifully written. I'll bet the realtor was loving this. He probably has never been honored so eloquently. Peace to you and your family:)

Thanks Daniel. He was very touched and asked if he could print and frame it as a reminder of why he loves his job. I thought that was pretty cool.
